“Eine Tänzerin voll Frische und voll lebendigen Glücks an ihrem Dasein”: Enthusiastisch pries ein Journalist des “Börsen-Kurier” 1917 das Talent Anita Berbers. Auch der Berliner Autor und Kritiker Oscar Bie war beeindruckt: “Das Stärkste wird in reiner Akrobatik erreicht, in groteskem Zittern, Verschlingen, Schlagen, Werfen, Überschneiden”, schrieb er über Berber.

“A dancer full of freshness and full of lively happiness in her existence”: a journalist from the “Börsen-Kurier” enthusiastically praised Anita Berber’s talent in 1917. The Berlin author and critic Oscar Bie was also impressed: “The strongest is achieved in pure acrobatics, in grotesque trembling, devouring, hitting, throwing, overlapping,” he wrote of Berber.
