Monotone Man lives in a monochrome world. He spends his time walking the straight and narrow, ticking boxes and avoiding unnecessary contact with strangers…



In a world where we so often go out of our way to avoid the people around us, Zoo brought this interactive celebration of connection and colour to an exciting array of outdoor festivals. 

Monotone Man was Zoo Co's first outdoor piece and was commissioned in association with Lyric Hammersmith, Greenwich and Docklands International Festival,  Imagine Watford and Latitude Festival. Produced in association with Lyric Hammersmith and first performed as part of the Lyric's Theatre in the Square season.

Monotone Man was watched by:


  • Over 15,000 people

  • At 4 different festivals

  • And for a time, a condensed 10ft tall version could be seen projected on a shopping centre in Croydon!
