“Göttin der Nacht”: So hat ihr Biograf, der Berliner Kunsthistoriker Lothar Fischer, die Tänzerin getauft. Hier ist Anita Berber 1917 als “Binga van der Wal” zu sehen. Sie trat zunächst mit der Tanztruppe ihrer Lehrerin Rita Sacchetto auf. Noch während des Ersten Weltkriegs löste sie sich von Sacchetto, um als Solotänzerin zu reüssieren.

“Goddess of the Night”: This is how her biographer, the Berlin art historian Lothar Fischer, baptized the dancer. Here Anita Berber can be seen as “Binga van der Wal” in 1917. She first performed with the dance troupe of her teacher Rita Sacchetto. During the First World War she left Sacchetto’s troupe in order to succeed as a solo dancer.
