Joana Joy: Standing Still

“Fearless, playful, intriguing and refreshing”- Theatreview

STANDING STILL is a stand up show by seasoned comic, ex-professional "dancer-dancer" and cabaret dynamo Joana Joy (Banana Jolie). In a desperate need to 'do less' and 'be more', JJ has created a stand up comedy show where she will stand (mostly) still. EXCEPT at three random times, decided by the audience. Witty stand up comedy interrupted with high quality dance (maybe a Muay Thai demonstration).

A psychology and philosophy graduate, material ranges from being a mature age student, the history of dust, idioms rewritten, how to not smoke, meditation, tidying up, therapy and sibling dynamics. More deeply, the show is about productivity, overachieving, and capitalism/  being human.
