The multi-international award-winning SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW returns to London’s Southbank Centre for a fifth consecutive Christmas season, playing the Royal Festival Hall from 16 December 2015 to 3 January 2016.
A combination of theatrical clowning and breath-taking visual effects, it is a show unlike anything you have ever seen before – a world of wonder, in which a bed becomes a boat, a web of cotton envelops the audience and one tiny piece of paper becomes a snowstorm that will, quite literally blow you away. SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is a stunning spectacle, which combines the unbridled silliness of slapstick with visual extravagance and beauty, all of which has established its creator, Slava Polunin, as a creative genius of international acclaim.
SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is performed by a world-renowned company of clowns led by Slava Polunin, the Artistic Director of the St Petersburg Circus. 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 a far wider audience. In its 22 years, the show has been performed in 120 cities in 30 countries to more than 3 million spectators.
SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW 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.
SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW was created and is staged by Slava Polunin, directed by Viktor Kramer and Slava Polunin, with set design by Viktor Plotnikov and Slava Polunin, costume design and special effects by Slava Polunin, and sound by Roman Dubinnikov and Slava Polunin.
SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is produced at the Royal Festival Hall by Matthew Gale, Mark Goucher and Jenny King.
