SF International Arts Festival: Clouds of Fish

October 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Clouds of Fish is symbolic of the plight of fish in the oceans ,that we have to protect our fellow species assuring our own future. 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.

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.

Sha Sha Higby pursued the art of puppetry and sculpture in her early years, then one year in Japan studying the art of Noh Mask and theater, then a Fulbright-Hayes Scholarship to study dance and shadow puppet making in the villages in Indonesia for five years at the Academy of Music and Dance, lacquer arts in Tokyo and Kyoto under the Japan-United States Friendship Commission. an Indo-American Fellowship to study the textile arts of India, and a Pilot Travel Grants Fund from Arts International for Bhutan, the National Endowment for the Arts in Solo Theater Fellowship, U.S. Artists at International Festivals and Exhibitions, Theater Bay Area CASH, and the California Arts Council.
