SKRAJ on 21 Nov 2020 at 15:00
Kauppamiehentie 3, Tapiola (Espoo)

SKRAJ is a concert that connects generations and demonstrates the importance of being yourself. Fears and prejudice can sometimes stand in the way of this. Inspiration for lyrics and monologues has been drawn from encounters with people of different ages. To reduce prejudice and cultural divides, songs and monologues are presented in Swedish, Finnish, Arabic, Russian and English. The song concert is suitable for all ages, but we recommend it especially for seniors and their grandchildren. The concert is both touching and fun.

JAM – Herra Hillon hämmennys (Mr Jam’s Confusion) on Tue, 29 Sept at 10:00, Kannusali, Kannusillankatu 4, Espoon keskus

Duration: 55 min
Age recommendation: 3+

JAM - Herran Hillon hämmennys

Mr Jam carries all his possessions with him. With no money or home, he leads a vagabond life and wanders around carrying his bags. Mr Jam has everything that he needs, but his possessions also include antiques whose value only he understands. The former trinket seller’s most expensive treasures – Esmeralda, Vilivili and Urho – come to life to the horror of Mr Jam and to the delight of children.

Romantically wistful and thrillingly absurd, JAM carries the viewer from dreamy visuals to expressive mimics and feisty action. The storytelling takes children and other clown-loving people to the twists and turns of unexpected events. Mr Jam’s confusion is an identifiable experience of the world for both children and adults.
