International performance/sculptural artist, Sha Sha Higby creates exquisite and ephemeral body sculpture that she performs in in solo performances. Internationally renowned for her evocative and haunting performances, she is influenced by her studies in Asia, Noh Mask and theater, dance and shadow puppets.

Sha Sha made some intricate puppets out of Asian Lacquer sap and took them to Myanmar (formerly Burma) for research with this sap. She gave performances including one at dawn on top of the temple overlooking Bagan and we gazed at the sunrise together.

About Sha Sha Higby

Using the manipulation of hand crafted materials, textures and exotic sculptural costume interwoven with glass finger puppetry, dance and intricate props, it takes Higby two years to make and develop a new costume… slowly moving us toward a sense of patience and timelessness.

She also studied for a year in Japan, observing the art of Noh Mask and theater, and spent six months in India under an Indo-American Fellowship. She has received numerous awards and grants, including a NEA Fellowship in solo theater and grants from the Zellerbach Family Fund and from The Japan Foundation for collaborative artistic work.
