Slava's Snowshow returns to the Royal Festival Hall for a fourth magical year. Performed by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin's internationally renowned company of clowns, having delighted theatregoers around the world for 20 years this multi-international award-winning hit is now established as London's leading Christmas show.
This is theatre like you've never seen before. Comedy and spectacle provide fun for the whole family, never more than when this incredible show fills the Royal Festival Hall with a heart-stopping blizzard of snow. No theatre or circus finale quite compares with this, and, as an added communal pleasure, Polunin and co release into the auditorium a batch of giant coloured balls that slowly bounce off upstretched arms, as if everyone had been invited to play a slow-motion, slightly ominous game of beach-ball.
The rest of the show is oddball in a more contained way. To the strains of birdsong, forlorn fairground echoes, electronic bleeps, ghostly train whistles and bass rumbles, a procession of artful, wordless vignettes conjure a landscape that bobs between dream and nightmare.
Featuring breathtaking visual effects, The Sunday Times called Slava's Snowshow 'theatrical brilliance'.
