In 1908 she performed in a professional offering of Zola's Der glkhs zined". Here she became known to a group of intelligentsia,
among them the translator and journalist L. Blumenfeld and Zigmund Gzivatsh, with whom she married. They founded a dramatic circle and directed for the first time in Paris the plays of Asch and Peretz Hirshbein.

In 1912 she studied in the French dramatic studio of Rena Moybel. In 1913 she acted under the direction of her husband, together  with Esther Ruchel Kaminska, Libert, Moshkovitsh and Lobel.

When the war broke out, she traveled to Argentina. Here she acted with breaks in various troupes.
