A wise person once said, "The hardest thing to make an actor look is dead. The hardest thing to make a puppet look is alive." When you watch Joey, the technical marvel at the center of War Horse, move around on stage, it's hard to think of him as anything other than alive. We went behind the scenes of the production to see him in action. You can read more about Joey in our Art Attack blog on him.
