SLAVA'S SNOWSHOW
STORMS INTO AUSTRALIA!


Internationally acclaimed spectacle comes to

The multi award-winning international sensation Slava's Snowshow storms into Australia for a limited season playing in Sydney from 11 to 23 June then travelling to Brisbane 26 to 30 June, Canberra 3 to 7 July and finishing in Melbourne playing from 17 to 28 July.


Slava's Snowshow



Slava's Snowshow is to clowning what Cirque du Soleil is to circus. Slava's Snowshow is as theatrical as it is simple, as involving as it is inspiring - Variety, USA

Since its creation by renowned Russian clown Slava Polunin in 1993, Slava's Snowshow has played to millions of people in more than 30 countries and 120 cities including New York, London, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow. The show comes to Australia in 2013 following a second sell-out Winter season in London and is already confirmed to return to London for its third year this Christmas.

The show has garnered worldwide popular and critical acclaim, as well as a growing number of awards – in the USA Slava's Snowshow earned a Tony nomination for Special Theatrical Event in 2009 and won the Drama Desk Award in 2005 for Unique Theatrical Experience; in the UK, the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment (1998) and the Time Out Award (1994); and in Australia, the Helpmann Award for Best Visual or Physical Theatre (2000); as well as a host of other awards in Russia, France, Mexico, Denmark, Spain and the UK. Slava's Snowshow has been lauded as “a theatre classic of the 20th century” by The Times in London, and Slava Polunin praised as "the best clown in the world".



The single most beautiful thing I have ever seen in a theatre in my life.
- Simon Callow, Sunday Express, UK

Slava Polunin created his Snowshow following his sensational performance as part of Cirque du Soleil's Alegria, drawing on the influence of artists such as Charlie Chaplin, Marcel Marceau and Leonid Engibarov.

He and his company of clowns have taken clowning out of the world of circus, and brought it into the theater. Slava's Snowshow is a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning arts, and a beautifully crafted visual spectacle.

The show brilliantly creates a world of wonderment and fantasy that transports the audience to a joyous dream-like place, where 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 audience.

The stunning finale sees a letter turn into snowflakes, and the flakes turn into a snowstorm, which whirls around the auditorium, leaving the audience ankle-deep in snow.

Slava's Snowshow is a visual masterpiece loved by children & adults alike.



Slava's Snowshow is presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and David Atkins Enterprises with Slava and Gwenael Allan.

Created and staged by Slava Polunin.
