CELEBRATING 20 YEARS DELIGHTING UK AUDIENCES INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED THEATRICAL SPECTACULAR TO TOUR THE UK
SLAVA’S SNOW SHOW BECOMES AN ANNUAL FESTIVE FAMILY EVENT RETURNING TO LONDON’S ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL FOR A FOURTH YEAR
17 December 2014 – 5 January 2015
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…
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its UK debut, multi-award winning spectacle SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW returns to London’s Southbank Centre for a fourth consecutive white Christmas from 17 December 2014 – 5 January 2015. Rapidly becoming an annual Christmas event, the show’s triumphant return to the Royal Festival Hall after three sell-out winter seasons follows a UK tour this autumn, visiting Birmingham, Woking, Bath, Edinburgh and Manchester.
A combination of theatrical clowning and stunning visual spectacle, SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW 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’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 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 3 million spectators in over 4000 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.
