Monotone Man

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, The Human Zoo brings this explosive, interactive celebration of connection and colour to an exciting array of outdoor festivals this summer, commissioned in association with Lyric Hammersmith, Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, Imagine Watford and Latitude Festival. Produced in association with Lyric Hammersmith.

We are thrilled to announce that Monotone Man is supported by Arts Council England!
