Myth and Infrastructure (2010)

June 10 @ 10:30PM EDT (11:30PM ADT / 8:30PM MDT / 7:30PM PDT)

One of Matreyek’s earlier piece that combines live performance with projected animation. The artist’s shadow is constantly present in this piece from beginning to end – sometimes in semi close-up and sometimes as a full figure – as the world around her shifts and transforms. Her shadow becomes an integral part of her own fantastical animation worlds, as she traverses oceanscapes, cityscapes, and domestic spaces to conjure dreamlike scenes with light and shadow.

Created in 2010 with Special Projects Grant by Princess Grace Foundation, Seed Grant by Under the Radar Festival and the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.
