Creativity & Movement
Welcome to my world of movement and creation. I am Yeri Anarika, a dance artist born in Mexico and based in Berlin and the Uckermark (North Brandenburg). With more than 25 years of international experience, I share my passion for the art of dance in connection with other arts as a performer, creative director and teacher.
My passion is to set creative processes in action through dance, using contemporary themes in order to better understand the world in which we live and to achieve a sensitive understanding of our world.
The scenic projects merge dance with contemporary aesthetics, music and multimedia. With a focus on diverse universal themes, we work across borders and involve the team of artists invited to each project as well as the audience.
A dance, music and multimedia immersive work that portrays the dual nature of the human being.
On the one hand, the creative, innovative and visionary power, and on the other, the exponential pursuit of economic advantage through power and control. It explores the standardized global food production and its effects on people and the environment.
Premiered in Brandenburg on May 2023, with the support of the "FondsDaku", this project invites us to reflect on the complexity of human nature.
Inspired by Anton Chekhov's work, "Three Sisters" dives into the search for happiness and the desire for the unattained.
This film version is presented as a multi-channel video exhibition. In addition to capturing the dance, the film includes interviews to the performers, interweaving their personal journeys with the fictional characters.
Premiered on December 2022 as part of DOCKdigital's CINEMADANCE project in Berlin, "Three Sisters" offers a unique look through the choreographic and film lens.
A performance that encourages thinking about the physical and invisible divisions that divide our globalized societies.
The choreography is enriched by the fusion of dance with content, mexican rhythms, electroacoustic music and multimedia art.
A cast of 14 Mexican dancers brings this proposal to life. Curated by Elisa Carrillo Cabrera and Mikhail Kaniskin, the work is a project of the Elisa Carrillo Cabrera Foundation supported by EFIARTES. Premiered at the Danzatlan Festival on June 2022 in Mexico City.

I am Yeri Anarika
I am a choreographer and teacher of contemporary dance, yoga and body arts. Since 26 years, I have been passionate about exploring movement and creation. My professional training as a dance performer in Mexico and France marked the beginning of my enriching and multicultural journey.
Throughout my career, I have collaborated with renowned artists and companies, as well as teaching workshops and directing works in several cities around the world.
I am convinced that dance and the arts of the body should be part of education and self-knowledge in people's lives. Therefore, the projects I develop promote dance in the communities and bring dance closer to the new generations.
