Falling out of Time



Eight people have gathered. All of them have experienced the worst thing imaginable: losing a child. One man goes out to search for his dead son. What happens after that is an abstract, musical, shifting journey into the relentless landscape of grief. “His death isn’t dead”, says the centaur who has fused with his desk. Falling Out of Time is director Suzanne Osten’s interpretation of the Israeli writer David Grossman’s acclaimed novel of the same title, published in 2014, which draws on the author’s grief after the combat death of his 21-year-old son. Erik Uddenberg has adapted the text; music was composed by Anders Niska. Falling Out of Time is Suzanne Osten’s first production at Dramaten.
