■ Author and director Boris Nikitin has rewritten Hamlet into a contemporary performance for audiences who love the avant-garde. Featured as an opening attraction at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, the show will be staged at the UCT Little Theatre in Orange Street, Cape Town, on Wednesday July 4 and today Thursday July 5, at 7.30pm. In a mix of experimental documentary play and music-theatre, performer and electronic musician, Julia*n Meding, takes over the part of a modern Hamlet who revolts against reality. Supported by a baroque-quartet, Meding exposes identities of himself to the public. PICTURE: Donata Ettlin
