Swamp JuiceCanadian puppeteer and performer Jeff Achtem is a bit bonkers - spending most of your time in a darkened room by yourself will do that - but once absorbed into his Swamp Juice world you'll only have admiration for his inventive creative genius. His award-winning shadow puppet show is suitable for children aged 7 and above but it would be a shame to leave it to the kids. Adults can appreciate the clever use of scraps of rubbish, tinsel and his own hair ("it's not much but it's enough") as he creates shadow puppets with expressive eyes who become part of a slightly sinister storyline. Following a small section of audience participation we move from the underwater world and the stomach of a sea monster to a 3D chase above ground, flying through the skies. You'll leave thinking this is truly the work of a (crazy) genius. If you miss Swamp Juice in May you can catch the brand new show, Slapdash Galaxy, in July at the Southbank Centre's London Wonderground, part of the E4 Udderbelly Festival which places an upturned purple cow next to the riverside for a summer of mapcap comedy and off-the-wall entertainment.

 

About Soho Theatre

The Soho Theatre Company was formed in 1969 by Verity Bargate and Fred Proud, but it didn't have a permanent home until 2000, when its current Dean Street location opened. This modern space was the first theatre to be built with National Lottery money. More about Soho Theatre
