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 World-renowned Mersey poet Adrian Henri, Horny Handed Tons of Soil fuses beat poetry with folk song; electronic composition with live brass & percussion and documentary film with theatrical storytelling.
