Boris Nikitin

Martin Luther Propagandastück

Part of the festival HEINER MÜLLER!


German / 

“You have forgotten how to die” – this statement from Heiner Müller’s “The Task” and the legend of Doubting Thomas are the starting points for the new theatrical fragment that Boris Nikitin has developed with the performer Malte Scholz. The performance aims for the ultimate interruption in the course of things, posing the question of the last possible surrender: the willingness to die – ‘savoir mourir’ – in order to finally live.     


Concept, text and direction: Boris Nikitin / Performance and text: Malte Scholz / Production management: Annett Hardgen / in collaboration with: Unity Gospelchor Pankow
