"Christine Marie's shadow design conjures a literal ocean of surprise." —Los Angeles Times

"Extraordinary and beautiful...Matreyek pushes the boundaries of realism." —THE Magazine LA

RADAR L.A. FESTIVAL

 

Two extraordinary artists share a program that eloquently demonstrates how wordless performance paired with evocative visuals can cast new light on theatrical storytelling. Drawing on centuries-old traditions and new technologies alike, Christine Marie and Miwa Matreyek use the seductive power of the projected image, but through strikingly different means. Christine Marie and her collaborators generate large-scale imagery from simple handheld lights and props, blended with live actors into an incandescent work of expressionist theater. Animation and performance artist Miwa Matreyek places her body within meticulously constructed realms of fantasy-driven animation to create live works in which hallucinatory logic unveils timeless journeys. But both artists delight in the wondrous possibilities that lie at the intersection of the dramatic and the cinematic.
