Get rapt in a cinematic vista of animation, theater, and shadow play on this thematic journey that takes you through Earth’s history—from its first spark of beginning to the complex world of accelerated human interaction, the Anthropocene. Like a 21st-century diorama for the 22nd century, Miwa Matreyek—who has performed worldwide, including the Tate, MoMA, Lincoln Center, and the Exploratorium—uses computer-generated animation mixed with live performance in silhouette to create her own form of storytelling that has intrigued audiences of every age.

Admission is free. RSVP online beginning Tuesday, April 4, at 9 a.m.
Rhythms + Visions / Expanded + Live 3 will light up the outdoor spaces of USC School of Cinematic Arts Complex in an evening of music, interactive animation, projection mapping, animated inflatables, and virtual reality. Innovative artists Refik Anadol, Miwa Matreyek, and Patterson + Reckinger will perform an eclectic program of contemporary visual music and audio-visual art.
Groundbreaking artist Refik Anadol, who has performed visuals with the L.A. Philharmonic at Disney Hall, will make visual music on a super-panoramic 70-foot screen. On a second stage, Miwa Matreyek’s full-body shadow will interact with magical animated worlds. Patterson + Reckinger will perform an animated work for three toy pianos and three-channel, one-bit electronics, and the VR Visual Music Lounge will offer exciting virtual-reality musical experiences from international artists as well as USC faculty and students.
Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by Michael Patterson, Candace Reckinger, Eric Hanson, and Scott Fisher (Cinematic Arts).
