Leandre

What with the West End revival of Slava Polunin's Snowshow and the arrival of Leandre in London, this is turning into the Year of the Clown. Leandre, a rubbery Spanish performer with a suitcase full of outlandish props, had a hit at the Edinburgh Festival last year with his show, Leandre: Clown? Cabaret? Silent Movie?, which he is now bringing to London.
