12 August 2014, 11:00am-1:00pm
Location: Barossa Arts & Convention Centre, Magnolia Road, Tanunda, SA 5352
Swamp Juice a shadow puppet comedy, about one man's romp through a swamp.
Swamp Juice is the second production from acclaimed Canadian-born performer, Jeff Achtem. Using bits of rubbish and household items, Jeff creates stories in shadow puppetry. All of the puppetry is performed in front of the screen, so the audience gets a peek at how each silhouette is made.Swamp Juice is a simple story, told with no dialogue or text.
A man explores a swamp, interacting with the characters that he finds: a pair of bickering snails, a mouse teasing a snake and bird feeding its chick. A chase begins, and the man and the bird tear about the theatre, leaping off the stage and into the venue. Looking up, the audience are immersed in the action and see Jeff's homemade shadows zip around on all the walls and the ceiling above.
Swamp Juice is a playful and immersive puppet experience, for all ages.
