A Higby performance is a blissful combination of shamanism,dance,& puppetry in which the costume comes alive... for three decades her art has remained as impressively unique as it is whimsically refreshing. "San Francisco Chronicle.This features a collaboration with paper lamp artist Nobuyuki Yoshioka.Workshops by both artists will be presented as lnternational performance/sculptural artist, Sha Sha Higby is known for her evocative and haunting performances using the exquisite and ephemeral body sculpture she meticulously creates and moves within. Elements of Asian and Western traditions influence this "theater of slow passion"(Ornament Magazine) unique for their"metaphorically hyper functional outfits ...combining elements of sculpture, puppetry and wind chimes." (Independent,Colorado)..Sculptural costume,dance, and puppetry explore the atmospheric world within the magical borders between death and life... She creates a fantastical world with her rich costumes, meticulously formed.
