Pulleys, levers and magic – bringing Aslan to life
By Aaron Chatha
Aslan is the kind of larger-than-life puppet that puts every other larger-than-life puppet to shame.
Operated by two very talented actors and puppeteers, Bruce Horak and Jarod Blake, the lion sits on both their shoulders and is operated by a series of interlocked pulleys and levers. Created by the Stratford Festival, it’s graciously been rented to Alberta Theatre Projects for the current production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
