Performance Lab » Miwa Matreyek
Experience the unique work of Miwa Matreyek, a multimedia performance artist based in Los Angeles who creates spellbinding, visually rich fusions of inventive animation and live performance that will leave you rapt. She will present two performances: This World Made Itself and Myth and Infrastructure. This World Made Itself merges cinematic vistas with theater and intricate shadow play. Its thematic journey takes viewers through the history of the earth, from the universe’s first spark to our complex world of accelerated human interaction. The performance unfolds as both a panorama referencing natural history and science and a spectacle of surrealistic metaphor and fantasy. Myth and Infrastructure traverses seascapes, cityscapes, and domestic spaces to conjure dreamlike scenes with nuanced layers of light and shadow. Sponsored by the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation and Demara Titzer. $10 ($8 for Members), register online or by calling Guest Services at 479.657.2335.
