Slava's Snowshow returns to the Royal Festival Hall
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
DUE TO popular demand, Slava’s Snowshow is returning to the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, where it runs from Monday, December 17, 2012 to Monday, January 7, 2013.
The multi award-winning international sensation has delighted and thrilled audiences in over 80 cities around the globe including New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow.
Described as “an unmistakably unique, unmissable comedy masterpiece”, Slava’s Snowshow sees Slava and his ensemble of clowns using water, cobwebs, bubbles and dry ice to dazzling effect.
And the whole culminates in a spectacular snowstorm “of sparkling snowflakes” that engulfs the audience.
Russian-born Slava Polunin, “the world’s most famous clown”, first brought his theatre to England in 1988 – to Hackney Empire where he became an overnight success. Ten years later and following a sell-out run at the Old Vic in 1997, Slava’s Snowshow won the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment.
NB: Slava’s Snowshow is recommended for children aged eight years and over and no children under three will be admitted.
