Sha Sha Higby: Performance Art

In this Spark video produced by KQED, get a glimpse of Sha Sha Higby's creative process, a process that has wandered through time, leaped over oceans and slowly grown by accretion. Each individual costume that is used in performance can take years to make and is informed by a lifetime of experience. The semi-abstract nature of Higby's costumes allows viewers to color the experience with their own imagination -- one might end up in a place far away that the artist herself may not have imagined. With her art, Higby has found her journey and achieved her escape.
