Clowning around with shadow puppets

Swamp Juice edited.jpgMontrealer Jeff Achtems' life has taken a major turn since he got his biology degree from McGill University.

He's become an international performer - a clown and a puppeteer.

In a way, he's still doing what he always did as a kid in B.C. when he'd play around with objects and take things apart.

It's play that he takes very seriously these days. The craft of clowning is now his career and his latest show has taken him to the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival once again this year.
