This World Made Itself
2018 | October 25 | Tower Theatre
Miwa will perform an excerpt from her solo performance piece, This World Made Itself, followed by a Q and A This piece is a live performance combining projected animation and a live performer’s shadow silhouette, to tell the story of the history of the earth from its fiery beginnings to the complex world of humans.
Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles. She creates live performances that integrate animation, performance, and video installation. Arriving to animation from a background in collage, her work explores how she can create dream-like, often surreal, yet emotionally impactful moments on stage, by combining animation and body, in a juxtaposition of the cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and the visceral.
Her work has been shown internationally at animation/film festivals, theater and performance festivals, as well as art galleries, science museums, tech conferences, universities, and more.
