Ted Talk: The Genius Puppetry Behind WarHorse

Adrian Kohler & Basil Jones. Long Beach, CA: TED2011, March 2011. Duration: 18:12

“Puppets always have to try to be alive,” says Adrian Kohler of the Handspring Puppet Company. 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.
