To adjust for such meetings, in ZOO Jonas Corell Pedersen tried to create a structure forcing forth great movements and mistakes.

At the webpage of Black Box Teater the following could be read about the project:

"In mistakes the spontaneous is created, and the interest of the audience is sharpened. Through the incomplete and the transformable the audience is invited to meet the people onstage."

The claim was illuminated through a quote from Leonard Cohen:

"Ring the bells that still can ring / Forget your perfect offering / There is a crack, a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in"
