Highly strung was a contemporary dance piece which dealt with the difficult issues of prison brutality.  Looking at the reciprocal brutalisation  of inmates and staff.  The piece incorporated shadow play, prerecorded footage and graphics along with live camera footage.  The flats were made up of strips of material allowing the performers to partially or completely come through the walls and projections.
