Sha Sha Higby


Sha Sha Higby is known internationally for her evocative and haunting performances,  using the exquisite and ephemeral body sculpture she creates and moves within. It is a metaphorically rich and intimate journey in elaborate multi-layered costume of textures she makes by one out of wood,  silk,  paper,  urushi,  ceramic, and gold leaf. The unfolding spectacle creates a path in which movement and stillness meet. Shreds of memory lace into a drama of a thousand intricate pieces,slowly moving,stirring our memory toward a sense of patience and timelessness. Elements of Asian and Western traditions influence Higby's unique work.
