Handspring UK

Handspring UK

Significant Object grew out of Handspring Puppet Company’s work in London on War Horse and Or You Could Kiss Me. We have a strong continuing partnership relationship with Handspring, and we began as part of a project called Handspring UK.

Handspring UK made new puppet work in London using the energy and personnel created by the success of War Horse.

Other colleagues who developed themselves through War Horse and are making their own extraordinary work with puppets include Toby Olié.
