Shortlisted for three Adelaide Fringe awards- 2011.
Punk snails, opera-singing mice and neurotic snakes in a swamp like no other. Using lo-fi shadow puppetry, acclaimed Canadian performer Jeff Achtem debuts an inventive new comedy show about life in a swamp. In each scene, the audience watches the visual transformation from bits of rubbish into intricate silhouette characters. A visual feast for the imagination.
