A storm of joy: SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is finally

back in Montreal for 10 storms only!


Montreal, November 16, 2016—Basking in a wave of global success and having filled with emotion more than 5 million spectators, Slava Polunin, in association with “Juste pour rire Spectacles”, will be back to present SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW in Montreal from May 2–13, 2017 at Theâtre St-Denis. Don’t miss the snowstorm of the century—a show that gets people talking, laughing and crying as it reawakens those child-at-heart feelings we all have. Tickets go on sale on November 17, 2016.


After conquering the planet’s leading cities many times over, SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW, a visual and musical extravaganza, continues to make the whole world shed tears of joy. This epic production is set within an absurd and surrealistic world of idiots on the loose, a work of art in which each scene paints a picture: an unlikely shark swimming in a misty sea; clowns and the audience tangled up in a gigantic spider’s web; fantastical green creatures with long hat-like ears; heart-breaking goodbyes with a coat rack on a railway platform; audience members hypnotized by giant balloons; and an out-of-this-world snowstorm that’s sure to sweep away any traces of sadness.


This one-of-a-kind interactive performance adds a touch of magic and enchantment as it whisks adults back to their childhoods. By reinventing the art of clownery, SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW has captivated audiences around the world who want to see something other than traditional circus-style clowns. This theatrical masterpiece is geared towards all audiences: families, couples and anyone seeking a glimpse of happiness.
