Irène Jacob finds her own voice to recount 'The Malady of Death'

In front of the camera, she's been directed by the greats: Michelangelo Antonioni, Wim Wenders and Krystof Kiewslowski. On stage, she's grappled with work by Chekov and Molière. Actress Irène Jacob has now plunged into Marguerite Duras’s "The Malady of Death" to take on the role of narrator in a new production of the play in Paris. She tells us about director Katie Mitchell's multimedia approach to the universal questions of intimacy, power dynamics and the impossibility of love.
