So, basically this is an advertisement.

A friend, Susan, graciously invited me to an evening at Popejoy Hall on the University of New Mexico Campus where the featured guest was the star of War Horse.

Yep! The Horse.

Of course I took pictures and then took a gander on YouTube, where I found a clip of the very presentation we saw!

The movements and sounds created by the three puppeteers made the puppet disappear and a (slightly unusual looking) horse come alive on the stage.

I spend a lot of time with horses.

That transformation was remarkable.

I am GOING to War Horse when it comes to NM next year!

I already know the story is good (having seen the movie) but I really just want to watch the horse!

Have a great week everyone!

  1. Wow! That is some horse…er…puppet of a horse.

  2. I have this queued up to see on the Roku…haven’t quite had the nerve to do it. (Life of Pi just left me reeling…I’m in a cautious mood!)

  3. I quite enjoyed the movie… this looks like an amazing play. Those puppeteers are stunning.

  4. Trust me – I saw the play on one of it’s last days here in Toronto, and it was absolutely mesmerizing…. not just the horses – there’s a goose that got his own ovation at the curtain call!
