Slava's Snowshow

4
Sat, 17th Dec 11
At the South Bank for a couple of weeks this Christmas

This is the third time I have seen Snowshow, well, in truth, the first time I saw just the core compnent which formed part of the Cirque du Soleil's Alegria, but the second time was essentially the show that's on now when it was at the Piccadilly. Sat in the stalls I let the first half just wash over me, enjoying the music and the pure spectacle and control that Slava's company exhibit - a physicailty and story telling ability that I can only admire and which is as far from the tired slapstick of UK circus clowns as it is possible to be.

After too short a time (around 30 minutes), and covered in cobweb, came the interval - but I was not fooled, a quick trip to the icecream stand whilst they cleared the first act then back for the "intermission" which involves a lot of interaction with the audience, getting wet, being climbed over and general fun and games. I love these bits, where audience and performers are one.

The second part is more of a mix, from the haunting nursery scene to the absolutely beautiful snow story which gets me every time ... I love it|

A part of me is so pleased that this is the show I've seen before, I love the familiarity it brings ... but part of me thinks that this might be the last time I see this, I'll wait for a different show next time ... if  you haven't seen it then do, if you have then you will know if you want to see it again, most of you will!
