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.
