The wonderful fantasy world of Slava’s Snow Show is set to return to the UK this Christmas – can you believe we’re already talking about Christmas?
But Slava is magical and audiences young and old fall under his spell. Book tickets now and be entranced.
Slava is playing the Royal Festival Hall in London for the fourth year running but, before then, there is a short five-date tour.
Enter a joyous dream-like world, unlike anything you have seen before. A world in which a cobweb envelops the audience and one tiny piece of paper begins a heart-stopping blizzard of snow…
A combination of theatrical clowning and stunning visual spectacle, the Snow Show is performed by a world-renowned company of clowns led by Slava Polunin, who was recently
appointed artistic director of the St Petersburg Circus.
Slava is the internationally acclaimed winner of the Time Out, Olivier and Drama Desk awards for most unique theatrical experience.
It had its UK premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in 1994, and has since toured all over the country, delighting audiences of all ages and winning an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment during its run at the Old Vic in 1998.
The show’s popularity overseas has seen it performed in 120 cities in 30 countries to more than three million spectators in over 4,000 performances,
Influenced by artists such as Chaplin, Marcel Marceau and Engibarov, Slava and his company have taken clowning out of the world of circus, and brought it to theatre lovers, fellow practitioners and families worldwide.
