The amazing puppetry behind “War Horse”

Check out this link for a wonderful video describing the creations that allow the horses and other animals to live and breathe and have emotions unlike anything I have ever seen before.  We saw War Horse in London recently and were moved beyond belief by the realism of the ‘puppets’.

“Puppets always have to try to be alive,” says Adrian Kohler of the Handspring Puppet Company, a gloriously ambitious troupe of human and wooden actors. Beginning with the tale of a hyena’s subtle paw, puppeteers Kohler and Basil Jones build to the story of their latest astonishment: the wonderfully life-like Joey, the War Horse, who trots (and gallops) convincingly onto the TED stage.
