Ensonglopedia of the Human

elements that make us humanAn A-Z of what it means to be human

Our in-house humans are currently working hard on finalising this, our next Ensonglopedia.

It was created during lockdown and will be premiering at Brighton Fringe on Friday 4th June 2021.

Tickets are now on sale for our 5 shows at Brighton Fringe on 4th, 5th, 6th, 12th & 13th June 2021 @4:45pm


Ensonglopedia of the Human is the fourth full-length Ensonglopedia, and we are also launching a series of webisodes alongside the live show.


The show will be enjoyed by all ages. A version for schools will be created, geared specifically towards children at Key Stages 2 and 3.


Ensonglopedia of the Human is in the final stages of development and will have one song for each letter of the alphabet A-Z, all answering the question “What does it mean to be human?” in different ways. It covers biology, sociology, neurology, evolution, technology, hair-ology (there’s probably a fancy word for that) and much more besides.


The show is peer reviewed and supported by people from organisations including:

  • Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, King’s College London
  • Guy’s Hospital, London
  • SUNY Polytechnic, New York State
  • Amnesty International
  • Action Against Hunger
