Horny Handed Tons of Soil

Beat poetry fuses with music in this innovative theatre piece exploring the myth, magic and reality of the city of Liverpool, inspired by the eclectic work of poet Adrian Henri and in the 50th anniversary year of The Mersey Sound.

Horny Handed Tons of Soil melds spoken word and folk music; electronic composition with live brass and percussion; documentary film with theatrical storytelling.

Lizzie Nunnery and Vidar Norheim delve into themes of destruction, construction and memory within the stories of what has been lost and found, in the resculpting of the Liverpool landscape over the last 50 years.

’The city is alive. Wandering the streets, The Child, The Poet and Death trace memories and map dreams onto a landscape shifting under the spell of time.’
