from Half a String
An online celebration of puppetry, folk and earthy D&B.
A three-part mini series, Seedling follows the adventures of a young seedling tree puppet, lured to leave the forest by a strangely empty world.
The journey played out over an episode-a-day during Seedling’s Weekend 11 -13 June 2020.
Half a String‘s new show features beautiful puppets handcrafted and performed by Peter Morton (he’s a pretty nifty puppet designer) while modern folk singer-songwriter Avi Simmons and drum & bass artist Suitman Jungle provide live music to accompany the puppet adventuring through uncharted terrain.
Mini-series suitable for ages 3+
Re-watch Seedling’s adventure, be inspired by the amazing puppet design and puppetry and listen to the wonderful Avi Simmons and Suitman Jungle collaboration that forms the Seedling soundtrack.
