Experience
Snowstorm
(1994-2013)


The three clowns poignantly portray the issues of love and love-lost here in "The Storm"

The Snowstorm is a unique clown act that has more sorrow in it than lafter. Performed to the song "Nocturne", the clown with the white tuft of hair shows us his sorrows here. He appears with a tattered suitcase, chuggling along the train tracks left on the floor. When he arrives at his destination, he opens the suitcase, pulls out a dress coat and hat, and hangs them up. He then begins to brush off the coat when it mysteriously comes alive! The two cling to one another in comfort, but there's malice afoot as the mysterious friend slips a letter into the clowns pocket. A train whistle interrupts them and the Clown takes off.

When he arrives at his intended destination (his hat smoking), the clown finds the letter in his pocket. As he reads it, his smiles turn to frowns. He is so saddened by the contents of the letter he tears it up and throws it into the sky. Snow begins to fall along side the pieces of the letter. The clown is alone in the world. Sad, the clown begins to walk away but is confronted by a blast of wind. The wind blows harder yet; the snow blinding us all.
