Luc Bondy - My Life / Ma vie
Script and direction: Hanns-Bruno Kammertöns and Irene Höfer
Docu series „Ma Vie / My Life, 43 min., ZDF/ ARTE, 2010
Whether directing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York or the Scala in Milan, 62 year-old Luc Bondy of Switzerland is perhaps the most important theater director in Europe. Bondy, who made a name for himself as an author, directs the theater 'Schaubühne' in Berlin as well as managing the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna theater festival). As a director, he is able to inspire his actors with a soft voice and parsimonious gestures towards peak performance. As a man, who knew all along to enjoy the artistic gleam of life, he overcame mortal illness.
When asked how he would characterize his friend Luc Bondy, Peter Handke answers, 'All the windows wide open and there’s a violin or a guitar, and the draft causes the instruments to tremble, even emit a sound – that could be something from Luc Bondy.'
