«Hamlet» – Boris Nikitin

Brazil — Events Boris Nikitin «Hamlet» © Donata Ettlin

«Hamlet» by Boris Nikitin is not a retelling of Shakespeare’s play but uses his material as a mask with which to reflect on identity, individuality, delusion and reality. In a mixture of experimental documentary performance and queer music-theatre, the performer and electro-musician Julian Meding takes on the role of a contemporary Hamlet rebelling against reality. Supported by a Brazilian string quartet, Meding embarks on a tour de force, in which he reveals himself, his body and his biography to the eyes of the audience.

After three shows at the MITsp Festival, one of the most important performing arts festivals in Brazil, on 6, 7 and 8 March, «Hamlet» travelled on to Fortaleza for two shows on 11 & 12 March at Giro das Artes.
