A collaboration with Stuart Sherman (artist) brought her to New York in 1982. As a performer, Köhler has worked with John Jesurun, Richard Foreman, Jeff Weiss, Fiona Templeton and Georg Osterman. Her night club performances with Steve Buscemi and Mark Boone Junior were legendary. Among others, she appeared in Werner Herzog's Variete at the Hebbel Theater Berlin.

In 2003, she reprised her role as Natalya in the Wooster Group's revival of Brace Up!; her performance was praised in The New Yorker as the "emotional center" of the show.
