TED Talk: The Genius Puppetry behind War Horse

I don’t know about you, but I have recently become unabashedly obsessed with TED talks. I thought this episode was rather appropriate for Torontonians. This TED talk focusses on Handspring Puppet Company, the company which designed and built the puppets used in War Horse.

War Horse takes place during the first World War. Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France.  He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in No Man’s Land.  But Albert cannot forget Joey and, though not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home.

War Horse opens on February 10th at the Princess of Wales Theatre. For more info go to
