About Miwa Matreyek

Coming from a background in animation by way of collage,MiwaMatreyekcreates 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 travels as a one-woman show, often incorporating artist talks and workshops.
She performs her interdisciplinary shadow performances all around the world, including animation/film festivals, theater/performance festivals, art museums, science museums, and tech conferences. A few past presenters include TED, MOMA, Lincoln Center, Sundance New Frontier, Future of Storytelling conference, Exploratorium, Adler Planetarium, ISEA conference, Meta.Morph (Norway), Anima Mundi (Brazil), Houston Cinematic Arts Festival, Carnegie Museum of Natural History and many more. She has also performed at many universities, including Texas A&M, Boston University, USC, UC San Diego, University of Michigan, Western Carolina University, University of Illinois in Champagne-Urbana, University of Hawaii in Hilo, and 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.
Upcoming performances includeThis World Made Itself & Infinitely Yours, presented February 6-7 in Torontoas part of the 2020 Progress Festival.
