Anita Berber

Anita Berber (10 June 1899 – 10 November 1928) the greatest Expressionist dancer the world has ever see and an amazing actress who worked with Fritz Land and Conrad Veidt. A real wild child of the Weimar Berlin cabaret scene she lived her life to the full. An emotionally scarred childhood gave her lifelong demons but gave Expressionist dance the greatest exponent it has ever had. Painted by the great Otto Dix, she had a tumultuous love life, copious alcohol and drugs took their toll and she died young and was buried in a pauper’s grave in Berlin at the age of only 29.
