"SNOWSHOW is a universal and timeless theatrical poetic spectacle which has unanimously enchanted and empowered the imagination of audiences and critics since 1993 in dozens of countries, hundreds of cities with multiple thousand performances resulting in millions of ecstatic spectators from all nationalities, genders, beliefs, types and ages, probably like no other show. It is a genre of it’s own and remains as spontaneous and magical as on the first day it was performed, systematically catapulting adults back in childhood."

Slava's Snow Show opened this week, at Teatro at Montecasino amid a flurry of snow and glitter. This was my first time at Teatro, so off I went with my good friend Linda, to go and enjoy a night out. And oh my goodness, did we have a good time!
Celebrities and public alike, gathered to see the long awaited international show. Slava's Snow Show is a stage spectacle created and staged by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin. A somewhat amusing, sometimes dark but definitely (if you near the front you in for a particularly interesting night lol!) interactive show, it has won the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.
With a unique style that gathers the audience into the show, it was pure magic to be a part of. With equal parts joy and sadness, the show weaves a spell around the audience, transporting them to another world filled with whimsy and is, at times, surreal to watch. Clowns and more clowns, this show not suggested for under 8's, for good reason. There are times in the fantasy that it grows darker and more introspective which may frighten smaller children. While this show may not appeal to everyone (if you like dialogue then this is not the show to see lol) it is a show that will have a part that appeals to everyone. Like a dream you flit along the story line, with wide eyed wonder at the magic that is created by the clowns.
While some parts were a bit sadder, we laughed and laughed and clapped our hands in delight, over and over during the show, and if you want to know if I would recommend you see it...YES, It was a really wonderful experience.
Book to see the show in South Africa HERE at Teatro at Montecasino NOW, or later this year at Artscape
