Sabine Dahrendorf co-founded the company Danat (1984-2000). She has directed and choreographed multiple performances in the field of contemporary dance.
Throughout her career she created dance pieces such as Bajo cantos rodados hay una salamandra, about ancestral customs in Castilla and León, which was invited at the prestigious Théâtre de la Ville in Paris in 1990. She has also done revisions of forgotten stories, some well-known, others falsified, like the one about Kaspar Hauser (1992), or about the possible evocation of a danced sound, Knistern (2001), based on the work of Gaston Bachelard, or about poetic memory in forgetting, Los girasoles rotos (2010), inspired by the poetry of León Felipe and the pictorial work of Anselm Kiefer. There have been others that make reference to paintings and famous engravings, such as El cielo está enladrillado (1990), a work that draws inspiration from Goya’s Caprichos and which received the Ciutat de Barcelona Prize
