WAR HORSE AT THE ARSHT


Press day at the Arsht Center in Miami to interview the inside of a horse. Not just any horse, but Joey from the stage play Warhorse. Meet the puppeteers and see how they do it.

“Theatrical magic! Thrilling!” — The New York Times A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914. As World War I begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England 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, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London, New York and Toronto. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
