MYRIAM PEREZ CAZABON
CHOREOGRAPHER | DANCER | EDUCATOR
She takes her first steps in the dance world between Donostia-San Sebastián and Irun. She gets further Higher Education in Contemporary Dance in CODARTS (Rotterdam).
Her trajectory in creation, education and interpretation starts in 2004, laying a special interest in collaborating with different Arts, such as music (Mursego, Elle Belga, Hatxe), theatre (Hika Teatroa), cinema (Akelarre film), photography (Nagore Legarreta, Aitziber Orkolaga), multidsciplinary installation (Larraitz Torres, Rqer-Eva Villar), sculpture (Chillida Leku Museum) and of course, dance (Ai Do Project, Kukai, Red Atalak 2.0, Node, Doos Colectivo).
Driven by her personal motivations and the need of getting deeper into a choreographic language of her own, she starts her own company in 2016, helped by the funding of the Basque Government and the support and collaboration of Gipuzkoako Dantzagunea and Donostia Kultura.
“It is my concern, above all, to make of contemporary dance a closer discipline; to see persons on stage, rather than dancers. Hence my perseverance on investigating what becomes of a dancer when she doesn’t have to dance, who or what is hiding behind the choreography; to cherish those scenes that are the quietest and most silent.”
After several years developing choreographic work, Myriam Perez Cazabon decides to shelter her work under the name NERI(H)ARI, where diverse and multidisciplinary projects can accommodate together, in collaboration with different art disciplines such as music, cinema, theatre or photography.
NERI(H)ARI ‑a space devoted to her personal creations and her own ways of doing‑, is where Myriam Perez Cazabon understands dance as a reflection of emotional ins and outs, silence as a way of communication and stillness as a form of movement, emphasizing, primarily, the relevance of presence and gaze.
She defines her work as sharp contemporary dance, that is to say, clear, transparent and accurate. And interdisciplinary, fostering its communication and transmission value.
