Tom Hill


Tom Hill first created the Carnival of Curiosity & Chaos out of his love for the freak show.  Tom is a self- determined creator, dreamer, trickster, extremist, circus performer and escape artist.  Driven by an incredible passion for self-expression and the arts he assembled this circus sideshow collective after being long eschewed by several venues.  He has now performed all over the United States working with performance arts venues for over 15 years providing excellent and talented performance art. 




It’s rare that a performance forces me to question everything I believe about art. When it happens it puts me in a state of ecstasy; ...The Carnival claims to be a kind of freakshow, but it is much more than that… They believe in what they do, and that fierce belief in a living art, in a vital and real statement about the meaning of consciousness comes alive.
