Swamp Juice

Bunk Puppets (Australia)

Winner, Total Theatre Award, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011
Critics' Pick by The New York Times

“Innovative, memorable, fun” ── The Times, London

See shadow puppets whizz around in 3D!

Bickering snails, a neurotic snake and an opera-singing mouse. Welcome to a swamp like no other. Using shadow puppets made from bits of rubbish, Bunk Puppets creates an imaginative (and sometimes scary) tale of one man’s romp through a swamp. Prepare to be astounded as shadows leap off the screen and dash around you in the 3D finale. You may watch Jeff from Bunk Puppets as he manipulates the multiple puppets in front of you, and even become a puppeteer yourself as you laugh and scream at this uproarious show. Watch out for the jellyfish too!

Featuring original music played live by Manny Fox

Junk-made Shadow Puppets

A big bird? A monkey? Or a unicorn? With silhouettes, it’s all up to you! Puppeteer extraordinaire Jeff Achtem shows how creativity and imagination can turn household bits and pieces, including cardboard, straw, and feathers, into a host of off-the-wall characters. There’s also the opportunity for a shadow show starring your new action heroes!
