BORIS NIKITIN (CH): IMITATION OF LIFE

When:     18 & 19/9/2013 at 20:00
Where:  &TD Big Hall, Savska 25, Zagreb
Free entrance!

Fake diaries, fake images, fake secret service reports, fake scientific protocols, fake biographies, fake documents – at some point they were all believed to be real. Only when they were revealed to be fakes did it become clear that reality can deceive. Boris Nikitin thinks about fiction and reality in a documentary show about fraud, manipulation and the power of affirmation. Two actors and a counterfeiter are the central figures in this play. They are imitators who are able to impersonate somebody else. Imitation of Life is a theatrical balancing act between certainty and uncertainty about information. A profound piece which points to the origin of our suspicion that things might not be what they appear to be.
