Teatern Under Bron Is Back With “Skuldsanering”

Martin Bengtsson and Rojda Sekersöz

We introduced you to Teatern Under Bron, the theatre under the bridge between Hornstull and Liljeholmen, last year via this chat with Rennie Mirro. Now the project has returned for 2017 with a new play ‘Skuldsanering’, written by Martin Bengtsson and directed by Rojda Sekersöz. Bengtsson is famous for his unusual entry into the dramatic world: he started out as a professional footballer and played for Swedish underage sides before he transferred to Inter Milan’s academy. The traumatic atmosphere in the Inter youth teams affected him, and he was struck by depression and attempted suicide. He later wrote a book about his experiences, I skuggan av San Siro (In The Shadow Of The San Siro), and then became a journalist, artist and writer. Rojda Sekersöz is one of Sweden’s brightest new directors, and her first feature-length film Dröm Vidare won the audience choice award at Gothenburg Film Festival this year. “Skuldsanering” revolves around train conductor Saga meeting Elli, who refuses to get off the train at the last stop. It’s a psychological and relationship drama where the characters must confront their own limits. Julia Marko-Nord, Kristofer Kamiyasu and Isabella Touma Pettersson take the roles, and the play features music from Kristian Anttila.

The play opens on August 18, and runs until September 1.
