An Explosion Of Surreal Silliness!
Bluma Appel Theatre, December 2008

“Aga-Boom, one of the most creative shows to heat Vegas in a while, is perfect for the entire clan.”
Las Vegas Sun

Get ready for a big BOOM in fun! Show One is proud to announce that the critically acclaimed clown show AGA-BOOM will make its Canadian premiere in Ontario this holiday season. Created by veterans of Cirque du Soleil and rooted in the European style of clowning, AGA-BOOM is a riotous mix of bold physical comedy, sophisticated stunts and delicious disarray.

“Masterly clowning.” New York Times

Clever, messy and outrageously fun, AGA-BOOM cuts through the barriers of language and culture to dazzle audiences of all ages.

Taking its name from a play on boomaga (the Russian word for paper), AGA-BOOM begins and ends with scenes about paper, starting with a small piece stuck to someone’s hand and escalating into a huge paper fight. In between is joyful chaos that features inflated garbage bags, juggling suitcases, enormous rubber balloons and lots of audience participation.

“The kids in the audience were on cloud nine, but hardly more so than the adults.” Los Angeles Times

AGA-BOOM combines physical comedy, mime, poetry, circus arts and experimental theatre to create a kooky, kinetic entertainment experience. AGA-BOOM is the brainchild of creator/director DIMITRI BOGATIREV who, together, with wife and co-star IRYNA IVANYTSKA, and cast mates PHILIP BRIGGS, ELENA NEKRASSOVA and ANTON BOGATIREV, are true masters of mayhem!
