"Who has ever built a four metre high elephant?". This question is the introduction to the clip in the NDR live talk show "Das!". The short report was broadcast on 19 January 2023 and shows, among other things, our work on a life-size war elephant. The moving animal puppet is to stamp across the stages of Europe in Scorpio's production of Verdi's opera "Aida" next spring.

To record a bit of the making-off, Jan and So┼ła Rimpl from the NDR studios visited us in our prop workshop. With camera and drone, they captured how we decorate stage pieces attach legs and a trunk to the elephant and paint dinner-plate-sized toenails.
