The multi-award winning international sensation Slava’s Snowshow returns to the UK this autumn commencing its 2017 journey at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff on Tuesday October 17.
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.
Now in its 25th year since its inception, 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.
Following its run in Cardiff, the show tours to Salford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Norwich, Bristol and Southampton before making a return to London’s Southbank Centre for an unprecedented fifth season of festive magic from 18th December – 4th January. The Snowshow is produced by Matthew Gale and Mark Goucher.
