Journey Of The Tall Horse


With its mix of magnificent puppets, live actors, captivating costumes and evocative music, video projection and dance, Tall Horse has enchanted theatregoers worldwide. This spectacular production is the result of an exceptional meeting between South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company and Mali’s Sogolon Puppet Troupe.

Assistant Director Mervyn Millar had unique access to the production, from development workshops through rehearsals to the first performances for the world tour.
This publication includes photographs of the production and a playscript of Tall Horse by Khephra Burns.
