"I remember the difficulties I had as a child colouring in the human being. I used yellow, and pink and brown, I mixed the colours, but never achieved the colour of the human being, all the rest I was able to give the right colour, the clothes, the houses, the trees and the air but not the human being, the human being\'s skin. I found it frustrating, stopped colouring in the skin, and left it the colour of the paper."
Oscar van den Boogaard
Thomas Hauert and his company, ZOO, have created a show that combines movement, words and music around the writings of Oscar van den Bogaard. Walking Oscar is a type of "musical" that does not respect the conventions of the genre. Oscar van den Bogaard\'s writing is non-linear, a collage of small episodes and thoughts that makes sense on a deeper level.
