Slava’s Snowshow returns to the Southbank

Published October 10, 2017

The multi-award winning international sensation Slava’s Snowshow returns to London’s Southbank Centre this Christmas for an unprecedented fifth season of festive magic from 18 December – 4 January.

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, Artistic Director of the St Petersburg Circus.

Enter a joyous dream-like world, unlike anything you have seen before. A world where a cobweb envelops the audience and a tiny piece of paper begins a heart-stopping snow blizzard. 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 80 cities around the Globe including New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow.

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.
