Join Malcolm Brushell, a professional painter and amateur alchemist, on his quest to find the pinky-est pink paint on the planet! Through cracking rocks,
mashing every conceivable vegetable, and even bottling and fermenting his own cow’s wee, he has created every colour imaginable. Through stunning puppetry and an energy fuelled performance all on top of a van, join this race to create the most potent pigmented pink paint imaginable.
The Lost Colour is the first custom designed show for The Puppet Van. 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 up against a huge corporate pigment making conglomerate. The show is suitable for all the family and is specifically aimed at ages 5+.
