From 2012 to 2018, she traveled between South America and Europe with circus companies such as 'De Berenis Circus,' performing in productions like Between Dexterity and DisasterSarasa, and Once Upon a Circus.

In 2018 she created, with Jean Méningue as director, her first solo clown act titled PRR !, and the street theatre performance CaraMva. The same year she moved to Paris, where she currently resides, to study at the International school of corporeal mime, the EIMCD.

Since 2020 she took part of the swedish-english company “Collective Moves”, contributing to the development and co-creation of the european circus project called Libertalia and the corporeal-lyriques performances of Frozen Waterfall in collaboration with String Theory from LA. She has also been a member of the clown crew Ship of Fools. And since 2021, she is part of the french company “Espuma”.

In 2021 she collaborated as a corporeal actress with the “Kollectif Revange” in Sweden for the film Pirates from the Future, participated in the french absurd theatre piece Adam, and various transdisciplinarity performances as La Cosa, also taking on the role of a director.

In 2022 she ends her studies at EIMCD, writing her thesis Intangibles Mountains focusing on the creative process through transdisciplinarity. She has also acted in the french movie Don't you remember me, and she has been the corporeal director assistant for the performance Amor Fati by Joel Heiras, focusing on Parkinson's disease.

 

​Currently, she is developping the feature film THEATRE STATE, where she is screenwriter alongside Isabel Lagos, an eliXir association production. This film is a gestural comedy collaborating with deaf actors, incorporating sign language along with gestural composition. Artists from different disciplines will play roles representing inner senses, aiming to awaken spectators to this possible life perspective where theatre is part of life. She has also begun developing the project Friction with the Espuma Company, exploring corporeal theatre as tools for life-expression in neuropsychiatrics.

In 2023 she wrote a new piece called PRRR!TUEL, a physical and sonorous tragicomedy inspired on the profound dilemma of human existence. In 2024 she will initiate an international collaboration for this creation.

 

Erika Webe chooses to live the way of the clown, corporeal theatre and cinema, believing in poetic universes as invitations for each person to explore life also in other ways, through surreal pauses with oneself and beauty when shared.

Existing as an artist in a frenetic society

is going against the tide,

its learning to give time to details 

so they can be  alive as well.

Existing as an artist is perceiving the absurd in the present,

its dancing in a logic other

and with an open look

and a soul able to listen.

It is an invitation to a tangible and poetical,

chaotically and out of time universe.
