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.
