For the first time ever, Slava’s Snowshow will be storming into SA later this year.
Slava’s Snowshow transports you into dream-like places – 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 audiences.
The stunning not-to-be missed finale sees a letter turn into snowflakes, and the flakes turn into a snowstorm that whirls around the auditorium leaving the audience ankle-deep in snow.
A wordless show that leaves you speechless – laughter through tears – the most heart warming show on earth – rare theatrical beauty – blissful – theatrical brilliance – an unforgettable miracle – a pure form of human kindness. After the show ends, nobody wants to leave the theatre – the joy is remembered forever – each person sees his or her own story in the show, your own world comes to life.
“Slava’s Snowshow is a unique piece of theatre that is difficult to pigeon hole in one genre. It is comedic, tragic, dramatic and will take the audience out of their day-to-day world and transport them to a beautiful, dazzling, enchanting place that will bring out your inner child. It is an unmissable theatrical feast and Showtime are proud to be bringing the show to South African audiences.” says Showtime’s Tony Feldman.
Over the past 20 years, this unmistakably unique, yet constantly evolving comedy masterpiece has played to millions of people across the globe in more than 120 cities including New York, London, Sydney, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Moscow and Rio de Janeiro. Lauded as a theatre classic of the 20th century by The Times in London, the show’s creator, Slava Polunin is praised as the most illustrious clown in the world.
