Treadmill – Are we in a gym?

Treadmill – Are we in a gym?

No, we happen to be in a Theatre Company, and here, we could mime a gym just in case we needed one. 

In the play, Treadmill is used as a metaphor for life in the city. Over here people actually pay to reach nowhere, sometimes as much as 6000 Rupees a month. The incongruities of a life are baffling. Especially in a city. We invented computers to work more in less time. But does anybody have that extra time? No. We are moving faster and faster, paying for everything it seems, water and later maybe for air? Where are we all headed? Are we getting anywhere?  

Watch Treadmill this Wednesday and Thursday at Ranga Shankara.

Indian Ensemble Presents
(a play in Hindi)

Official Selection at the First Festival of Contemporary Indian Theatre in Paris

“Treadmill is a journey of exploring personal memories of people in towns of India. Treadmill at its first glance is a comedy in the simplest sense of the word. In its simple manner it looks at the various instances of our lives when we continuously run but without ever getting anywhere. The metaphor of the treadmill looms throughout the play, in its content and in its form, where images, instances, memories repeat but are interpreted afresh by everyone in their own way.”

“Treadmill left one breathless, desiring more than ever to reminisce over the days gone by”- 
The Hindu (2012 May)
