Poetry, music and film combine in this new work from award-winning writer Lizzie Nunnery.

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.

Inspired by the incredible work of Liverpool’s world-renowned poet Adrian Henri, Horny Handed Tons of Soil fuses beat poetry with folk song; electronic composition with live brass and percussion and documentary film with theatrical storytelling.

Words by Lizzie Nunnery; Music by Martin Heslop, Martin Smith and Vidar Nordheim; Performed by Lizzie Nunnery, Martin Heslop, Martin Smith and Vidar Nordheim


Original film by Tim Brunsden; Design by Laura Lomax; Lighting Design by Julie Kearney; Movement by Eli Randle; Project Advisor Catherine Marcangeli.

Originally produced by Unity Theatre in response to the 50th anniversary year of The Mersey Sound, following a P+C/Unity Theatre/Liverpool Acoustic Festival seed commission in 2016.
