20 Stories High present
Touchy & Anthology

A double bill of Live Music, Hip Hop, film, and poetry, from Liverpool’s finest

What happens when some of Liverpool’s finest rappers, singers, poets, and Ninjas get creative in one space? The answer: something truly unique.

After a two-year gap, 20 Stories High are back on the road with a double bill bursting at the seams with originality, scouse humour and grit.

First up is TOUCHY – a collection of award-winning short films on the theme of touch. Unique stories told through a mash up of eye-popping animation, heartfelt music video, and gripping drama all shown on the big screen.

Next up is ANTHOLOGY – a raw piece of gig theatre that promises to raise the roof. A collection of uncompromising, emotive, and funny, personal testimonies. Expect heavy-hip-hop vibes, uplifting R and B, and a unique blend of poetry infused ninja moves

Themes and stories across the evening include – public displays of affection in same sex couples, the highs, and lows of transitioning and uplifting tales of Black empowerment.
