Cheap Slava’s Snowshow at the Royal Festival Hall
Slava's Snowshow is a stage spectacle created and staged by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin. The show won the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event. Back by popular demand, following sell-out performances last year, Slava’s Snowshow returns to the Royal Festival Hall this December 2012!
The multi award winning international sensation, Slava’s Snowshow has delighted and thrilled audiences in over 80 cities around the globe including New York,Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow. This Christmas, experience a joyous dream-like world which will touch both your heart and funny bone, culminating in a breathtaking blizzard leaving you literally knee deep in snow!
There won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas time. There may be snow in the UK, depending on how wrong the Met Office’s assurances of a mild winter prove. There is, however, a guaranteed snowstorm at the South Bank until the early new year, courtesy of Russian clown Slava Polunin and his not-so-merry men.
First created in 1993, Slava’s Snowshow famously climaxes in a man-made blizzard: tons of ticker-tape blasted into the audience using a wind-machine, to the rousing bombast of Carmina Burana, complete with dazzling head-on beam. Those near the front may need to avoid oohing and aahing to escape asphyxiation by shredded paper.
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 up-stretched arms, as if everyone had been invited to play a slow-motion, slightly ominous game of beach-ball. That crowd-pleasing send-off sits at odds with most of the preceding hour or so - apart from the web-like membrane that’s fast-trailed over the spectators’ heads to bring the first half to an abrupt end. The rest of the show is oddball in a far more contained way - a procession of artful, wordless vignettes which conjure – to the strains of birdsong, forlorn fairground echoes, electronic bleeps, ghostly train whistles and bass rumbles – a landscape that bobs between dream and nightmare.
