Performance Art: Sha Sha Higby’s The Powdered Sea to the Throckmorton stage.

* Saturday, June 24, 8:00 pm

The Powdered Sea

Sha Sha Higby is known internationally for her mythical evocative and haunting performances using puppetry and masks, in the exquisite and ephemeral body sculpture she creates and moves within.

It is a metaphorically rich and intimate journey in elaborate multi-layered costume, micro puppetry, and projection, based on the symbolic plight of our skies and forests, and ourselves. Using micro puppetry there will be serene forests of animals and birds followed by a stylized battle of demons of fire in the forests.

After being extinguished by the oceans, the sky opens and it begins to snow. Fish search through the remains for flying souls. What is to happen next?…as this ornate Giant watches over.
