Saturday 14 June & Saturday 21 June 7.30pm
Sunday 22 June 11.00am
Welcome to a swamp like no other! Using shadow puppets made from bits of rubbish, award-winning performer Jeff Achtem presents a gurgling adventure about life in a swamp.
Using no text or dialogue, the audience is plunged into a cartoon-like world where simple household items are transformed into strange silhouette creatures. Meet bickering snails, neurotic snakes and opera singing mice. As the story builds, the shadows begin to defy reality and turn into eye-popping 3D shadow puppets! The audience ducks as swirling jellyfish swim over, and swamp monsters leap off the screen in a totally unforgettable experience!
Swamp Juice is a lo-fi, DIY adventure ready to knock out your eyeballs and tear open your imagination.
With an original musical score performed by Manny Fox, Swamp Juice will appeal to all ages above 5. Most certainly not just for kids!
Swamp Juice won a 2011 Total Theatre Award (UK) and has played internationally to sell-out audiences in Edinburgh, Berlin, Adelaide and London's West End.
