Want to get caught in a snow blizzard with a bunch of clowns?
|Yes! Yes you doooooooo...|
Yesterday was the opening night for Slava’s Snow Show at Sands Theatre at MBS. Slava's Snowshow is a stage show created by Russian performance artist Slava Polunin.
|Slava's Snow Show on until 13th Nov|
I love that this show translates into any language because the story is physical (hilarious clown pantomime) and visual (thanks to amazing technological effects), and it can entertain all ages from little kids to tired old people like myself lol.
It’s no wonder that the show has won many awards, including the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, and was even nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.
The kids sat straight upright and were enraptured by the larger than life imagery … while I sunk in to my seat and just relaxed and watched the whimsy unfold before my eyes.
And Michael… my dear MJ started out afraid of clowns (when we first arrived, he hid behind the table cloth of a reception table when the clowns came past. So only Myla got photos taken with the clowns.
|(Sneak peek before the show started)|
He actually didn't want to watch the show so I put his hoodie on him and told him he didn’t need to be afraid, with his hood up, the clowns can’t see him. At 4 years old, he bought it lol).
But halfway through the performance, magic happened and he was no longer cowering and hiding under his hoodie but he took his hoodie off and was enjoying the show, and open to all the interaction and engagement. Now he finally loves clowns! (Note to self, don't let him watch "IT", hahaha)
Thanks for the invite, Base Entertainment Asia.
