“"Woyzeck" by Boris Nikitin and Malte Scholz is of great theatrical directness and sensuality. Inspiring and exciting.”
Basellandschaftliche Zeitung
“In a smart and atmospheric theatrical space, the students of Giessen show laconically that talking about (an in) theatre can become theatre.”
Theater heute
“Nikitin has found a fresh access to a play that is mostly covered by its classicity.”
Theater der Zeit
“The way Nikitin deals with Buchners classic is unusual and worth seeing.”

A play as a performance and at the same time as a total illusion that goes beyond the edges of the staging - right up to the audience discussion as a deceptive maneuver. "Woyzeck" - the play toured for over 6 years - is Boris Nikitin's first self-authored directorial work and his first collaboration with the performer Malte Scholz and the sound artist Matthias Meppelink. Created while still a student in Giessen, the work already contains the essential elements of Nikitin's theater: the essayistic, the play with the authentic and the documentary infected by the possibility of falsification, the raw and sketchy mixed with the dreamlike, the black box as a stage set, the question of identity and reality.

In 2009 "Woyzeck" was invited as one of ten outstanding independent production of 2007/2008 to the festival "Impulse".
