This World Made Itself

After two shows devoted to different styles of cutting-edge music (No Age and Olafur Arnalds), the Contemporary Arts Center’s vanguard Performance Series switches to a multimedia/live performance piece Sunday when Los Angeles artist Miwa Matreyek brings her This World Made Itself to CAC’s Black Box theater. 


This entrancing piece merges film/video and theater to inject her living, shadowy presence into an animated world being projected on screen. In doing so, her piece is meant to surrealistically move viewers through the evolution of the earth and human intelligence. It is set to the contemporary Electronic music of Flying Lotus. 

8 p.m. $14; $8 for CAC members. Contemporary Arts Center, 44 E. Sixth St., Downtown, contemporaryartscenter.org.
