Guild Hall: Miwa Matreyek on Stage, June 24, 3 PM




Miwa Matreyek—animator, director, designer, and performer—will present This World Made Itself and Myth & Infrastructure at Guild Hall on Sunday, June 24, 3PM. Matreyek, an internationally touring artist based in Los Angeles, has a background in animation by way of collage, and creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette. A combination of hand-made and tech, her work exists at the cross section of the cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible, illusionistic and physical that weaves surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature. 
“Prepare to be enchanted when animator and performance artist Miwa Matreyek reprises her mythologically inspired, multimedia-enhanced and visually ravishing shadow plays.”—Los Angeles Times
“One of 10 Must-See Art Films at Sundance.”—Huffington Post
Miwa Matreyek performs her interdisciplinary shadow performances around the world, including in a TED presentation, and at MoMA, Sundance New Frontier, Lincoln Center, Future of Storytelling, Exploratorium, Adler Planetarium, and many other venues. She received her MFA for Experimental Animation and Integrated Media from CalArts in 2007 and is a co-founder and collaborator of the multi-media theater company, Cloud Eye Control. She is also a recipient of the Creative Capital Award (2013), Sherwood Award (2016), and Princess Grace Award (2007).
This program is appropriate for adults and children, especially age 6+.

GUILD HALL, East Hampton
Guild Hall, one of the first multidisciplinary centers in the country to combine a museum, theater, and education space under one roof, was established in 1931 as a gathering place for community where an appreciation for the arts would serve to encourage greater civic participation. For nearly nine decades, Guild Hall has embraced this open-minded vision and provided a welcoming environment for the public to engage with art exhibitions, performances, and educational offerings. Art and artists have long been the engine of Guild Hall’s activities and the institution continues to find innovative ways to support creativity in everyone.
