About this show

Oh, Those Beautiful Weimar Girls depicts the life and art of Anita Berber, known today as "Weimar Berlin's Priestess of Depravity." In an era where everything was permitted, Anita Berber's celebrations of "Depravity, Horror and Ecstacy" were condemned and censored. She appeared in nightclubs and casinos, naked except for a sable wrap and a pet monkey hanging from her neck. Her body was thin and androgynous; her bright red hair was cut in a rebellious bob and a silver brooch filled with cocaine usually hung around her neck. She and her frequent collaborator/dance partner, Sebastian Droste, came to represent the decadence of Weimar Berlin with their nude dancing, drug use and flamboyant sex lives.
