Performance artist brings stories of our changing earth

Event has passed

Using animation, projections, and her own moving shadow, multimedia performance artist Miwa Matreyek creates magical, surreal, visually rich live performances that leave audiences spellbound!

THIS WORLD MADE ITSELF is a visually rich journey through the history of the earth, from the universe’s epic beginnings to the complex world of humanity. The piece is at once scientific (like flipping through a children’s encyclopedia), and emotional, surreal, and dreamlike. Some notable presentation of this work include Lincoln Center (New York), MOMA (New York), Sundance Film Festival New Frontiers (Park City), SFMoMA (San Francisco), Carnegie Museum of Natural History (Pittsburgh), TheaterFestival Boulevard (Netherlands), and more.

INFINITELY YOURS, her latest work, explores global warming, the anthropocene, and the vastly changing earth. This piece attempts to physicalize and emotionalize the non-stop barrage of news streaming in through our screens, of environmental transformation that we can’t seem to hit pause or rewind on. Miwa takes on plastics in the oceans, deforestation, food crisis, drought, super storms and much more in a cacophony of dreamlike, kaleidoscopic imagery.

"Magical…the sheer breadth of the imagery…is unlike anything you've seen before." —Los Angeles Times
