Joutomiehiä is a performance in which the dancers of Tsuumi collaborate with Katriina Honkanen and the Tulilintu ensemble. The performance includes strong rhythms as well as emotional ballads performed by four dancers and six musicians.

The name “Joutomiehiä” is a reference to Finnish vagrants from the early 19th century. The story is brought to life by a narrator who transports the viewers to the times and lives of the vagrants. The music is from Katriina Honkanen and the Tulilintu ensemble’s album and the show also has songs from Honkanen’s first long play “Rosvot”.
