"Slava’s Snowshow is to clowning what Cirque du Soleil is to circus.
Slava’s Snowshow is as theatrical as it is simple, as involving as it is inspiring.” - Variety, USA
"The single most beautiful thing I have ever seen in a theatre in my life." -Simon Callow, Sunday Express, UK
Slava Polunin created his Snowshow following his sensational performance as part of Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria, drawing on the influence of artists such as Charlie Chaplin, Marcel Marceau and Leonid Engibarov. He and his company of clowns have taken clowning out of the world of circus, and brought it into the theater. SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning arts, and a beautifully crafted visual spectacle.
The show brilliantly creates a world of wonderment and fantasy that transports the audience to a joyous dream-like place, where a bed becomes a boat in a storm-tossed sea; a woman is wrapped in cellophane and becomes flowers in a vase; a child walks in amazement inside a bubble; SLAVA boards a train and then becomes the train, his chimney-pot hat billowing smoke; and a web of unspun cotton envelopes the audience. The stunning finale sees a letter turn into snowflakes, and the flakes turn into a snowstorm, which whirls around the auditorium, leaving the audience ankle-deep in snow.
SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is a visual masterpiece loved by children and adults alike.
