Power Of Moo
What people say
"Het gele vraagteken is een wandelend nieuwsgierig
makend fenomeen. Op de meest onverwachte momenten
duikt het weer de kop op. Theater en performance staat zelden
zo dichtbij de toeschouwer. Zelfs zo dichtbij dat je het letterlijk aan
kan raken en dat je er zelf onderdeel van wordt. Zo word je als
toeschouwer op avontuur gestuurd en leer je jezelf te verbinden
met je omgeving en je medemens. En zo geeft het gele vraagteken
iedere toeschouwer het antwoord waar zij naar verlangt.
Volgend jaar weer! "
- Jörgen Scholtens, Oerol backstage -
"The Power of Moo has a kind of non defensiveness and openhearted manner
that invites people to engage in profound questions in improbable situations.
They bring a touch of the fun AND the profound,
and manage to challenge people's received ideas in a playful way."

"The Power of Moo knows how to engage and inspire people in a magical way.
The last time I went through their quest I ended calling my mom
telling her how much I loved her.
The performance at the SenseCamp Berlin was a great fun for
the 200 change makers we gathered. If you want to spice up
your event with some playful awareness and mindfulness exercises,
I can't think of a better option than the guy from Andromeda and his question mark!"

"Großartig! Wenn ihr ihn heute noch erwischt, dann geht
zum Mann mit dem Fragezeichen! Am ersten Tag bekam ich eine tolle
Nachricht von eine Freundin, die sie mir aufgrund der Challange schickte,
die ihr der Mann-mit-dem-Fragezeichen gestellt hat. Nun war ich dran!
Tatsächlich haben diese Challanges unterschiedliche tolle Auswirkungen:
aus seiner eigenen Komfortzone herauskommen oder Menschen Dinge
sagen, die man vielleicht nie oder zu selten sagt."

"I have met Richard at a number of events in Berlin during the past months
and have always enjoyed his inventiveness and ability to engage others in
open inspiring conversations with questions that make them stop and reflect.
We share an enthusiasm for questions. Look for the big yellow question mark
and you'll probably find Richard beneath it!"

"It is difficult to explain why exactly, but I think that the encounter with you today was something very important. The evening itself was very special, my friends and I met some school mates and the talks we had afterwards were also something that I would say make this very day totally relevant in relation to my future. I appreciate your art very much and hope that you will be able to share it with as many people as possible for as long as you want!"

"We had the chance to have Richard gathering Sustainability News on our first Sustainability Drinks event this February. It was a very entertaining part of the event. Richard gathered more than 10 exciting news from the participants and raised a lot of interest with his live news display. We can certainly recommend him for events"

" Richard has an entertaining and upbeat interaction style. I appreciate his ability to lift the energy of an audience with subtle humor. His presentation of his news project also has the benefit of engaging people in the ability to directly participate."
