Slava’s Snowshow

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning arts. The show brilliantly creates a world of wonderment and fantasy that will transport you to a joyous dreamlike 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.

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

Recommended for ages 8+.
