Immerse yourself in the whimsical world of SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW, a spellbinding spectacle where laughter and wonder collide. It’s a celebration that knows no bounds, uniting people of all walks of life in a shared moment of joyous folly.

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is a cavalcade of chaos and charm that invites you to leave the everyday behind and indulge in pure, tender delight.

After conquering the world’s leading cities many times over, SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW, a visual and musical extravaganza, offers a dream-like vision that overflows with theatrical magic and humorous antics. The production is set within an absurd and surrealistic world of ‘fools on the loose’, a work of art in which each scene paints a picture: an unlikely shark swimming in a misty sea; clowns and the audience tangled up in a gigantic spider’s web; heart-breaking goodbyes with a coat rack on a railway platform; audience members hypnotised by giant balloons; and an out-of-this-world snowstorm that’s sure to leave audiences spellbound.

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is the recipient of more than 20 international awards, including an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, a Drama Desk Award, and a Tony Award nomination.

Born in a small town in central Russia, Slava Polunin discovered the art of pantomime in high school. As he grew to adulthood in Leningrad, he developed an eccentric version of the form, which he lovingly dubbed ‘Expressive Idiotism.’ From 1979 on, Slava quickly became a fixture on Russian stages and TV, sharing his gifts and continuing to redefine the art of clowning with his poetic and poignant approach to comic performance. This discovery would reach its zenith with SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW, which burst onto world stages at the 1996 Edinburgh Festival to universal praise and wonder.

Since its debut, the work has travelled all over the world, with more than 12,000 performances in over 225 cities and 40 counties.
