Currently, Anita Ammersfeld tours in Austria and Israel with her husband Erwin Javor reading from his book "Ich bin ein Zebra - Eine jüdische Odyssee“ that tells about his family’s and other Eastern European Jews’ experience across countries and generations.

In April 2018, Anita Ammersfeld performed in a special appearance, in a tribute to Herman van Veen, a long-term friend, during the Dutch cabaret festival at the DeLaMar Theatre in Amsterdam.  

From 2016 to 2018 she served as industry expert at the Advisory Board of the Lower Austria Performing Arts Committee.

In 2015 Anita Ammersfeld decided to close her theatre, the stadttheater walfischgasse, when she saw all achieved she had intended after she had extensively renovated, re-opened and run the theatre for 10 years (2000-2015).

In her last performance in her theatre, Ammersfeld played the female lead in „Doubt“, the Pulitzer and Tony Award winning play by John Patrick Shanley.

The last production at the theatre repeated its first: „Freunde, das Leben ist lebenswert“ by Charles Lewinsky who again staged the programmatic play on Viennese artists’ experiences during the Nazi regime. On May 8, 2015, the last performance of this play ended the era of the stadtTheater walfischgasse. Since September 2015 the Vienna State Opera has been renting the theatre to use it under the name of AGRANA Studiobühne Walfischgasse to perform operas for children, concerts, and on stage talk shows with artists.

On December 3rd, 2015, at City Hall, the Councillor for Culture of the City of Vienna honored Anita Ammersfeld with the „Golden Badge of Honor“ for her achievements.
