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”Slava’s Snowshow is a universal and timeless theatrical spectacle which has unanimously enchanted and empowered the imagination of audiences and critics since 1993 when Slava’s creation first came to life.

Slava’s Snowshow is a genre of its own and remains as spontaneous and magical as on the first day it was performed, systematically catapulting adults back into childhood.

Slava’s devoted fans follow the show across the many countries on its tour schedule, in the hope of coming back to this astonishing world of dreams, fantasies and the world of childhood.

Slava Polunin himself is a world-renowned Russian-born, Paris-based performer and creator who, with his company of clowns, has taken clowning out of the world of circus and brought it into the theatre to create a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning arts, and a beautifully crafted visual spectacle.
