When the critically acclaimed international stage sensation, Slava’s Snowshow opens in South Africa for the first time, at the Teatro at Montecasino on Tuesday 26 July, a very special guest is expected to be in the audience - the show’s creator, Russian Master Clown legend, Slava Polunin!

Praised as one of the most illustrious clowns in the world and famous for his yellow clown character, Assissai, Slava is an icon of Russian culture. Following his sensational performance as part of Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria, Slava went on to create the Snowshow in the early ’90s and since it opened more than 20 years ago, Snowshow has never stopped touring, playing to millions of people across the globe.

The show and its creator have been presented with 20 of the world’s most prestigious theatrical awards, including the Laurence Olivier, Drama Desk, Triumph and Golden Nose awards.

“Slava no longer performs in the show and he seldom travels with The Snowshow so we feel privileged that this iconic entertainer is joining us to watch the opening performances in Johannesburg,” says local promoter, Tony Feldman of Showtime Management.  “We look forward to welcoming Slava and The Snowshow to South Africa for the first time and to introduce them to our audiences and likewise our audiences to them.”

Slava’s Snowshow has a special edge for each country’s audience.  For instance, its absurd side comes in handy in the UK while the passionate side becomes more prominent in Spain. Its wide and filled soul is summoned up in Russia and its poetic side starts to sound clearer in France.  It’s going to be interesting to see the spontaneous responses by local audiences at the Teatro at Montecasino from 26 July 2016 until 14 August 2016 and then at the Artscape Opera House, Cape Town from 17 to 28 August 2016. Tickets are on sale now at Computicket online or at any Computicket service desk or call 0861-915-8000.
