Half a String uses puppetry, design and original music to craft fantastical human
stories that are grounded in live performance.


Join Malcolm Brushell, professional painter and amateur alchemist, on his quest to find the pinky-est pink paint on the planet! Through cracking rocks, mashing every vegetable, and even bottling and fermenting his own
cow’s wee, he’s created every colour imaginable…except for that rascally pink, but he won’t give up!
This vibrant joyful explosion of colour is an energy fuelled physical show full of clowning, puppets, and paint. The show has its roots in the history of pigment making and follows a loveable independent artist.

Suitable for all the family and is aimed at ages 5+
