When you hear the word clown most people think of silly jokes, funny ‘accidents’, light entertainment, big laughs and lots of happy kids. Clowns are something to enjoy at the circus while you eat fairy floss or a handful of popcorn. But it appears there are clowns and then there are Clowns, check out this amazing video footage of Slava’s Snowshow last week in Sydney.
If you have seen talented performer Slava Polunin in action in Cirque du Soleil you know you are in for a treat with this award winning show that has travelled to more than 80 cities worldwide. People of all ages have fallen in love with his magical mix of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning arts, after all it is not for no reason that people call him ‘the best clown in the world’. Slava’s unique, one-of-a-kind snowshow proves that you are never to old to enjoy clowns.
The jaw dropping show doesn’t stay confined to the stage, Slava’s Snowshow travels through the audience taking every single visitor on a wonderful, spectacular journey full of mind boggling acts and colourful sensations that are a joy to the senses. Watch a bed become a boat in a storm-tossed sea; see a child walk in amazement inside a bubble; look on as Slava boards a train and then becomes the train, his chimney-pot hat billowing smoke and take a deep breath as a web of unspun cotton envelopes the audience. This is a show that goes beyond your imagination, ending with an impressive snow storm of massive proportions.
The Slava’s Snowshow tour kicked off last week in Sydney and over the next couple of weeks the spectacle can be seen in Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne with the curtains closing on August 4th in Perth.
