Day Night Zoo

Multi-sensory theatrical installation

Three ways of decision making highlighted in a caricature. A day in the life of a man with a voice in his head that makes him painfully aware of the daily cascade of irrelevant choices. The night where the ultimate freedom consists of a crosswalk-free world and the zoo and in which only instinct matters.

‘Day Night Zoo’ is a theatrical installation in two construction site trailers and an animal cage. The story is told through video, slides, light, sound, scents and other special effects. ‘Day Night Zoo’ is produced by Stichting Different Trains (Foundation Different Trains). Floris Maathuis was the artistic director (together with Kasper Peters and Richard Neef), project leader and technical coordinator.
