World-famous Russian performance artist Slava Polunin is back in Moscow with his legendary “Snow Show.” RT dropped by to crack the secret of the world’s best clown’s art.
Slava Polunin has been delighting audiences for over 30 years, but his act is a far cry from the average custard pie, slapstick comedy normally associated with clowns.
“There are two main things that make the act special,” Polunin told RT. “The first is the opportunity for any man, any age, to regress back to his childhood. And the second is what our world lacks – tenderness, which is overwhelming in this show.”
This unique combination won Polunin popularity across the globe.
His “Snow Show” has been selling out in over 80 countries virtually unchanged for the past 17 years.
Without saying a word, he can touch your heart as well as tickle your funny bone.
In the course of its travels, the show has received such accolades as a Broadway Tony Award and Best Entertainment by Timeout magazine.
Polunin, however, says that the highlight of his stellar career lies in a different sphere.
“For me, it’s the last 30 minutes of each of my shows,” Polunin told RT. “It’s an opportunity to plunge into a happy space created by the audience with their smiles and happiness!”
Indeed, the most dazzling moment of the whole show is its finale. The atmosphere in the auditorium gets electric: what Slava Polunin creates on stage is a magical world in which, no matter how old a spectator is, he is made to feel like a child.
So as temperatures plummet outside, Muscovites can be thawed by a heart warming piece of theatre. As millions of fans would attest, there is no business like snow business.
