Miwa Matreyek (US)


Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles.

With her background in animation, Miwa Matreyek creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her moving images as a shadow silhouette, at the intersection of cinematic and theatrical, fanatical and physical. Her work makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between humanity and nature.

She performs her interdisciplinary shadow performances all around the world, including animation/film festivals, theater/performance festivals, art museums, science museums, tech conferences, and universities. A few past presenters include TED, MOMA, Sundance New Frontier, Lincoln Center, SFMoMA, and ISEA Conference.
