Animation of Miwa Matreyek at The Theatre Project, Ticket Discounts for Friends of the Maryland Film Festival!
The Theatre Project is pleased to bring the work of animator and multimedia artist
WHEN: March 16, 17, and 18
Both Myth and Infrastructure and Dreaming of Lucid Living are live performances with projected animation. As the artist walks behind the screen, her shadow becomes an integral part of the animated world—she crosses from domestic/home spaces of kitchens and dining room tables to oceanscapes and cityscapes in a fantastical journey.
Miwa Matreyek is an internationally recognized animator, designer and multi-media artist based in Los Angeles. She creates animated short films, as well as live works that integrate animation, performance and video installation. Her work explores how animation transforms when it is combined with body and space (and vice-versa). In her video project-based installations, animation takes on a more physical and present quality, while body and space take on a more fantastical quality.
Myth and Infrastructure and Dreaming of Lucid Living are being presented as part of QuestFest, a two-week international visual theatre festival. QuestFest features groundbreaking work from exceptional performers and companies dedicated to the use of movement, gesture, and digital media to tell stories. By stripping away the artifice of language, QuestFest builds bridges between disparate communities and cultures.
