Touches the heart. Tickles the funny bone.

Why See Slava's Snowshow?

"This show is hot, hot, hot! Breathtaking! Exquisite!"
Entertainment Weekly

"The unmissable and already classic Snowshow
is a thing of rare theatrical beauty."

The Times, London

How do you describe Slava's Snowshow? There are as many descriptions as there are audience members. Snowshow is the beauty of a single snow flake as it gently falls and lands on your shoulder. Snowshow is the sound of an adult laughing uncontrollably at nothing in particular.

Snowshow is the joy of believing that anything is possible. Snowshow is the sadness of a wave goodbye from a train station platform.

Snowshow is the realisation that life really is wonderful.
