LCC Presents Miwa Matreyek

Tickets start at $20 at, 303-987-7845 or the Box Office


More than a million people have viewed Miwa Matreyek's stunning visual performance for TED on YouTube; now the audience at Lakewood Cultural Center can see her live at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16. Matreyek is an animator, director, designer and performer based in Los Angeles who has been touring internationally since 2010. She studied animation in college and now creates live, stage performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette, creating an intersection of cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible, illusionistic and physical. Her performances exist both in the realm of the hand-made and the tech created.


Matreyek crafts a dreamlike visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature. She performs her interdisciplinary shadow performances all around the world, including festivals, art museums, science museums, tech conferences and universities. A few past presentations include for TED, MOMA, Sundance New Frontier, Lincoln Center, Future of Storytelling, Exploratorium, Adler Planetarium, ISEA conference, Meta.Morph (Norway), Anima Mundi (Brazil), Walker, Wexner, REDCAT, TBA festival, Fusebox Festival and many more.


Tickets start at $20 and are available at 303-987-7845, or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue).


Miwa Matreyek's performance is made possible in part through support from Colorado Creative Industries and the National Endowment for the Arts. 


The 2017-2018 Lakewood Cultural Center Presents season is generously supported by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), with appreciation to the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, and Denver Post Community, which improve and enrich the lives of those in our community.
