Ganz's close friend and colleague
Otto Sander and Bruno Ganz came to share numerous successes - among them, the 2003 stage production of "Oedipus" at Vienna's Burgtheater. Ganz wrote upon Sander's death in 2013: "And yet, we never found an answer to the question of how to perform. There are laws on the stage. We continued to explore them in the cafeteria, pubs, apartments, the cloakroom, in the outdoors, even on the high seas."
