The Warrior leads tracking and checking the environment safeguarding the ancient priest, their mute, other-worldly presence increased by subtle sound and smoke effects. These silent sentinels are the closest in our stable to the animistic roots of puppetry, and carry a tangible sense of a long forgotten world. This act is perfect for corporate events, especially Fantasy, Storybook, Magical Lands, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Game of Thrones themed events.
