Theatre: Boris Nikitin

Cape Town

Pro Helvetia presents Swiss theatre-maker Boris Nikitin with two thought-provoking works.

Imitation of Life is presented in the style of a documentary. Two actors take to the stage as experts of trickery, raising questions about what reality is. Who influences our perceptions? Woyzeck, performed by Mark Scholtz, is a lecture piece combining elements of radio. Based on Georg Büchner’s famous 1879 play about a military barber who stabs his common-law wife to death for infidelity, it deals with mental capacity and guilt.
