This charming silent comedy follows the quirky antics of Snowflake, a childlike street character who lives on a vacant lot strewn with rubbish. Bittersweet and touching - with a fine line between the sublime and the ridiculous – Snowflake speaks to human nature in an eloquent and deeply moving way. A comic descendent of Red Skelton, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Gale LaJoye has mastered all the technical tricks of the trade and masterfully combines the physical excess of slapstick with the sensitivity of mime. In Snowflake, he stages a tale of a kindhearted soul who, with little more than imagination and hope, breathes life into what others regard as useless, transforming the simplest of objects into comedic treasures.
″Astonishing… a theatrical trip well worth taking.″
