INFINITELY YOURS by Miwa Matreyek: Stream

A multimedia performance that explores the changing Earth

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

INFINITELY YOURS 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, de-forestation, food crisis, drought, super storms and much more in a cacophony of dream-like, kaleidoscopic imagery. 

Recommended for high school age and adults. Running time: 26 minutes

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Miwa Matreyek is an animator, director, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles. She has been an internationally touring independent artist since 2010.

Matreyek creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette, at the cross section of cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible, illusionistic and physical. Her work exists in a dreamlike visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature. Her work exists both at the realm of the hand-made and tech. She travel as a one woman show, often incorporat- ing artist talks and workshops.

She has performed her interdisciplinary shadow performances all around the world. A few noteable presentations include TEDGlobal (UK), MOMA (New York), Lincoln Center (New York), Sundance New Frontier (Park City), Future of Storytelling conference (New York), ISEA con- ference (Albuquerque), The Walker (Minneapolis), The Wexner Art Center (Columbus), SFMo- MA (San Francisco), REDCAT (Los Angeles), TheaterFestival Boulevard (Netherlands), Anima Mundi animation festival (Brazil), Adler Planetarium (Chicago), Carnegie Musuem of Natural History (Pittsburgh), and many more.

She received her MFA for Experimental Animation and Integrated Media from CalArts in 2007. She is also a co-founder and core-collaborator of the multi-media theater company, Cloud Eye Control. She is a recipient of the Sherwood Award (2016), Creative Capital Award (2013), Prin- cess Grace Award (2007), and Princess Grace Foundation’s Special Projects award (2009, 2012). Cloud Eye Control is a recipient of several awards and grants including MAP fund (2013), National Theater Project grant by NEFA (2013), NPN Creation Fund (2008).
