Summary/Abstract: This article begins with a brief outline of the activities of the HAU Center in Berlin, the site of many alternative and bold plays and the debuts of many presently recognized German artists. The author describes the center’s latest project, directed by Matthias Lilienthal: an adaptation of the controversial Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, created as a sort of urban parcour, where every station is a different director’s attempt to create a fragment of the novel. This tactic is meant to strengthen the strand of the novel that seeks to disillusion and is critical of Western culture.
