South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company came to prominence with their work on the international hit War Horse.

Now they have made puppets for the Barbican Centre's production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream in London.

It is the first collaboration between Handspring and director Tom Morris since War Horse - which has gone on to be performed around the world
