Miwa Matreyek at Dreamland Theater

October 7, 2016 at 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Location: Dreamland Theater: 26 E. Washington St., Ypsilanti MI
Calendar: Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series

Miwa Matreyek is an animator, director, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles. She creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette, at the cross section of cinematic and theatrical, fanatical and tangible, illusionistic and physical, the handmade and the high-tech. 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. Matreyek has performed extensively, including film festivals, performance festivals, art museums, science museums, and tech conferences. Other performances have included TEDGlobal, MoMA New York, Sundance, the Exploratorium, Adler Planetarium, Meta.Morph (Norway), Anima Mundi (Brazil), and many more. She is also a co-founder and collaborator of the multimedia theater company, Cloud Eye Control, and a recipient of the Creative Capital Award, Sherwood Award, and Princess Grace Award.

This event is presented in conjunction with Miwa’s Thursday, October 6 Penny W. Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series presentation at the Michigan Theater, Ann Arbor.
