Devid Striesow liest David Foster Wallace // Einrichtung von Thorsten Lensing

In the organizer's words:

The texts of the American writer David Foster Wallace are funny to the point of being hilarious and harrowing to the point of being hard to bear. They tell of all the age-old human problems and feelings that are not at all trendy. Wallace had the breathtaking ability to empathize with damaged souls and to tell stories from them. His idiosyncratic view of the world opens up new horizons for ordinary mortals. Wallace is considered one of the most influential and innovative writers of the last 100 years. His novels, stories and essays are among the most intellectually and artistically audacious that modern literature has produced. Devid Striesow, one of the country's best-known film, TV and theater actors, and the celebrated and multi-award-winning theater director Thorsten Lensing continue their exploration of David Foster Wallace with this reading, which began with the legendary production of the novel "Infinite Jest", which was invited to the Berlin Theatertreffen and was shown at the asphalt Festival 2021.
