Slava and Ross Mollison(l-r) Slava Polunin and Ross Mollison

Melbourne audiences will soon have the opportunity of seeing Slava's Snowshow the creation of world-renowned Russian Clown Slava Polunin. In one form or another Slava's Snowshow has been entertaining audiences, not only in Slava's native Russia but across the world, since 1993. The show has won wide acclaim both here and overseas and has been performed in over 30 countries, 100 cities and to more than 2.5 million spectators.

Ross Mollison, who has been producing the show in Australia and America for some ten years, is bringing Slava's Snowshow back to Melbourne in August and recently spoke with Australian Stage's Jan Chandler about his involvement with the show and what Melbourne audiences might expect.
