An estimated 15 years ago I saw Beckett’s “Quadrat I” and “Quadrat II” on German television – accidentally, and it was broadcast very late. The name Beckett was not unfamiliar to me; I hadn’t seen or read any of his work, just a few lines from Waiting for Godot which bedazzled me like they should have bedazzled any teenager who doesn’t think that getting a job with an insurance company would be a good idea. When Quadrat started, I had wanted to go to bed, but my eyes were glued to the screen. A sparse minute can be viewed on Youtube.
