Sibylle Dahrendorf was born in Cologne in 1964. She moved to Berlin in 1992, and started working as a freelance author for several TV stations. For her features, she travelled to Columbia, Mexico, Israel and Kosovo amongst other locations.

In 1998, she began her extensive and long-lived collaboration with Christoph Schlingensief. Until the artist's death, she documented many of his works and performances in various media formats, for instance in her documentary "Christoph Schlingensief auf dem Weg nach Bayreuth" (2004). Dahrendorf also made documentaries on other subjects, including "Moldawien: Triumph der Jugend in einem Land ohne junge Generation" (2007) and "Israel. Wir sind alle zweite Generation von irgendwas" (2008).
In 2009, she contributed a feature on Schlingensief to the TV series "Deutschland deine Künstler". Dahrendorf's documentary "Knistern der Zeit - Christoph Schlingensief und sein Operndorf in Burkina Faso", which depicts the last project of Schlingensief – who passed away in 2010 –, was released in 2012.
