Keep the pace. 3 actors on 3 treadmills for 60min. It’s as simple as that in Standstill.
Inspired by true stories, Standstill is a sharp and constantly sweaty dark comedy about the hopes, dreams and fears we have for our lives. The production and its three actors struggling to keep the pace had critics raving during the 2011 Auckland Fringe Festival:
“Anders Falstie-Jensen has woven an impressively-crafted, snappily-written whole out of snippets of modern life”- NZ Herald
“I have a suspicion that if Standstill debuted in Britain it would be hailed as an instant contemporary classic.” - Theatrescenes
Doctors, hairdressers, German tourists and world champion cyclists... it’s all there in a sweat dripping snapshot of modern life that will leave you breathless.
