All Horse

I had the honor of meeting and speaking with Halito (16 years old, Arabian), a horse who has often appeared on stage and screen, by now cutting a familiar figure in the Berlin theater-going community. Halito played a small but stirring role in tonight’s staged reading of Mario Salazar’s “Alles Gold was Glänzt” (All That Glitters), the fifth and final play of this year’s Stückemarkt. “Alles Gold” won the Hörspielpreis at the 2011 Stückemarkt, and will be produced as a radio play in the spring of 2012 (off the record: Halito is playing coy about his ongoing negotiations for an expanded speaking part in this upcoming version).

Though Halito is quite voluble, your knowledge of ‘horse’ might not be quite sophisticated enough to follow all his answers to my questions in the video included here, so I have included a transcript of our conversation after the jump.
