About In Search of Lost time

A tale of liberation, a sonata, a dream, an awakening, a gothic cathedral, a lovely dress, a modernity machine, a metaphysical lecture, an overwhelming hornyness, a jealous delirium, a gender euphoria, bathroom graffiti, a spy thriller, a disruption of chronological time, an antidote to rationality and measurability, a re-enchantment of the world and a hymn to sensuousness.

Marcel Proust´epic masterpiece In search of Lost Time is a 4000 pages long attempt to put words to everything in existence that really cannot be described.

In spring 2019 a monologue dramatized from all seven parts of the novel premiered at Stockholms most innovative independent theatre, Orionteatern – directed by Maja Salomonsson and Nina Jeppsson.

From the childhood paradise of the lush town of Combray to the empty snobbery and positioning of the Parisian salon, to the violence of the first world war, actress/director Nina Jeppsson brought a large Proustian gallery of quirky characters to life. A virtuosity performance of such intensity and sense of ‘here and now’ that it blew the minds of audience and critics alike. After rave reviews and word getting around town, the rest of the run sold out completely. (Orionteatern)
