The style chosen for Mr Hillo's Confusion - combining classical theater style with silent movies, miming and slapstick - works perfectly.

– Jussi Tossavainen, Helsingin Sanomat


Mr Jam Hillo carries all his belongings with him. Penniless and having lost his home, he leads the life of a hobo and wanders around dragging his bags. The bags contain everything that is necessary, but also antiques, the value of which only Mr Hillo can appreciate. The former junk retailer's most precious treasures, Esmeralda, Vilivili and Urho, come to life to the horror of Hillo and to the joy of the children.


The romantically nostalgic and amusingly absurd JAM carries the spectator from dreamy visuality to expressive miming and heated action. The silent storytelling takes children and others enchanted by clowns into the whirlwind of surprising incidents.


JAM – Mr. Hillo’s Confusion premiered in Espoo Cultural Center 31.8.2017, the performance is touring on 2018.
