Seine Stücke suchen dabei stets den Grenzgang zwischen Illusionstheater und Performance. Mit „Hamlet“ eröffnete er 2016 das Impulse-Festival in Köln. Theater heute schreibt: „Wie wenig andere führt Boris Nikitin das Theater derzeit an einen kritischen Punkt.“

Stumbling About In The Dark

Recently someone asked us about how Forced Entertainment went about the process of making performances. There was a long silence, a lot of ummms and errrrs, and then one of us (Richard Lowdon, if I remember correctly) said: ‘We don’t really have a set of fixed techniques or starting points. We just sit down and talk about what we want to make, and then we try to make it. But there are no signposts. Mostly what we do is stumble about in the dark until we bump into something interesting.’
