Slava’s SnowShow is the perfect show for those who want to go back to childhood. A fascinating journey into the world of children’s dreams and fantasies, snowfall that will bring back tender memories.
From the 4th to 8th of March, in the Hybernia Theater will be held the hit of theatrical productions – The Slava’s Snowshow. This show, that has no parallel in the world, will be presented for the first time in Prague.
The holiday variety show first debuted over 25 years ago in Moscow.
The show is created by Russian performance artist and clown, Slava Polunin, who is 69-years-old, and still stages this legendary theatre piece across the globe, no matter what the season is.
“Clowning is a certain point of view on the world, an ability to see things in a way that differs from what people usually see,” he writes on his website. “It is a great pleasure to collect joyful people who live and create things in this dimension. Once you start, you cannot stop.”
With Slava and his green companions, the boundary between the stage and the audience is purely imaginary: soap bubbles, gigantic spiders’ webs, snowstorms, and unexpected flying objects combine irresistibly to draw spectators of all ages into the charm and fun of the performance.
“My shows are successful because I do not perform them, I live them,” said Slava.
The show has a group of clowns, “Green”, with one “Yellow” clown, in a “celebration of winter and snow.”
Sad Russian clowns still waddle across the stage, their rubbery limbs and animated eyebrows expressing feelings more clearly than any words ever could. More often than not, those feelings are tinged with melancholy, although the characters are just so specific in their misery that you cannot help but laugh.
Slava’s Snowshow is a universal and timeless theatrical classic with more than 4000 performances seen by over 3 million spectators in more than 30 countries and 120 cities.
In New York, Snowshow has beaten off-Broadway records with over 1,000 performances at the Union Square Theatre.
