Performer & Contortionist Emiria Morihata


Performer & Contortionist Emiria Morihata

I was born in South Africa, my father is mixed Italian and Dutch, and my mother is Japanese. I live in Magdeburg Germany with my fiancé. I am working at Variete Theaters, at dinner shows, Burlesque shows, the Sexy Circus, and at Gig Shows.

I studied rhythm gymnastics and modern ballet. And also learnt to aerial hoop and circus act. When I was in America, I learned pole dancing. It was a great experience. But I broke my shoulder and lost my flexibility. Then I decided to be a contortionist again!! For me it is like a fish in the water.

I am still not finished being an artist. I am looking forward to continue creating my character to be very unique and special. So, step by step I found exactly one unique contortion style. This is called the “Massage Bench Contortionist”. I was in the German TV show “Das super Talent 2018” and my next performance is “Et Cetera Variete” in Bochum.

What hobbies and interests do you have?

Diving, home parties, summer sports…everything.

How did your interest in being a contortionist come about?

I followed my sister in joining rhythm gymnastics and modern ballet. Then I was very excited and kept doing it for 17 years. My sister did it for two years then she quit. But now she is a super popular cosplayer.

What is a typical day like for you?

Breakfast, contortion training for three hours, lunch (protein shake), gym for 1.5 hours. Spending time with my fiancé or friends. In the evening, I must drink one glass of white wine.

Which is a memorable show or performance have you had before?

OMG, this is my big surprise and never ever had it before.

My fiancé proposed to me on stage….In my act (please follow for the picture and videos) I just want to say he is my dream man and I am the luckiest woman in the world.

If you could learn anything in this world, what will it be?

Breathing under water.

Have you been in an embarrassing situation that is funny now when you look back?

I didn’t forget my show costume, but I forgot my general outfit. Then I asked all my colleagues to have some of their outfits.

What is a funny or lame attempt a guy has tried to know you before?

Once I was practicing in the gym, I did my hip exercise, one guy tried to tell me that my training was wrong and I was hurting my back. He offered to show me a better way. But I am a professional artist and I know how to train right for 17 years, so I said to him, “No thank you, my back is healthy and I know what I am doing.” After that, I saw him trying the same on another woman. I was laughing because the guy doesn’t come to the gym to practice fitness.

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Emiria. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

My opinion in defining sexy is having a passion for life. When I have a passion on the stage, I feel like “I am super sexy in the world”. This makes me motivated and confident. I will say, please find your passion – this is very sexy!!
