Boris Nikitin

Boris Nikitin was born in Basel in 1979 where he again lives today. He attended the Institute for Applied Theater Studies in Gießen. Starting with his first own work during his studies, he was regularly honored with important awards. He was repeatedly invited to festivals, such as Impulse, steirischer herbst, the Heidelberger Stückemarkt and most recently by Heiner Goebbels to the Ruhrtriennale. During his work in Freiburg, Graz, Berlin and Zurich, Boris Nikitin decided to expand the range of his creativity and has served as curator for festivals which supplement his own viewpoint with those of other artists. Most recently he curated the Basler Dokumentartheatertage “It’s The Real Thing 15”.

Nikitin works in the independent scene as well as at city theaters. With the staging of the final audition of the Otto Falckenberg School he will for the first time come to the Münchner Kammerspiele during the 2015/16 season.
