Levitated by live musical performance, animation, and stagecraft, Infinitely Yours is a kaleidoscopic homage to our biosphere manifested at the intersection of cinema and theatre. In her new solo performance, animator/performer Miwa Matreyek collaborates with the solo music project SORNE to bring about this fever-dream meditation of the news headlines we see every day heralding the epoch of the Anthropocene and life-altering climate change.

Channeling the famed cataclysmic power of Gabriel’s trumpet, SORNE combines his angelic vocals with a live looped composition. This is the soundtrack to a cinematic shadowplay performance by Matreyek that is seamlessly incorporated into her handmade animations. As her silhouette body traverses through urban sprawl, sweatshops, cleared forests, and oceans filled with plastics, Infinitely Yours reveals the invisible systems that hold up our globalized world and peels back the layers of what a planet with 7.3 billion people means. Humanity shape-shifts from an observer, to a creator and destroyer, to the one who is being created and destroyed, and then is reborn again.

Artist Bio

Miwa Matreyek

Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles. Matreyek creates live, one-of-a-kind staged performances where she interacts with her animation as a shadow silhouette, at the intersection of cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible, handmade and tech. Her work exists in a dreamlike, kaleidoscopic visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between humanity and nature.
