Clouds of Fish

"CLOUDS OF FISH" A symbolic plight of the fishes 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.
