Anita Berber is Dead!
About Anita Berber is Dead!
Expressionist dancer Anita Berber was a one-woman rebellion against a stiff German patriarchy. Based on a true story, "Anita Berber is Dead!" follows Anita's struggle to create a new mode of expression that defied artistic boundaries, as well as creating an identity free of constraint. Defiant, bold, and extreme, her work reached its apotheosis in the stunning, strange, and ultimately doomed creation: the "Dances of Lust, Horror and Ecstasy” which saw her banned from the concert halls of Germany and Austria. Her life burned with a furious heat, drawing those around her into a vortex as intoxicating as rose petals soaked in ether. The ISC Studio transforms into the Weisse Maus nightclub on the night of Anita’s triumphant return to the stage.
