It’s going to be a multi-sensory experience like no other!
Performance meets animation at the intersection of cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible at The Arts Centre this season.
Gear up for an evocative exploration of the earth and the environment this November at New York University Abu Dhabi.
Featuring work by Miwa Matreyek, This World Made Itself and Infinitely Yours are two stunning shows highlighting her unique interdisciplinary shadow performance.
She creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her projected animations as a shadow silhouette, creating a dreamlike visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature.

As for Infinitely Yours, it stands as an exploration of global warming, the anthropocene, and the vastly changing earth.
This piece attempts to physicalize and emotionalize the non-stop barrage of news streaming in through our screens, of environmental transformation that we can’t seem to hit pause or rewind on.
Miwa takes on plastics in the oceans, deforestation, food crisis, drought, superstorms and much more in a cacophony of dream-like, kaleidoscopic imagery.
