Shake Shake Shake is a stirring concert that slowly derails in a dance performance. A live band of dancers and musicians sings about being stuck and shaking it out, chasing the top and hitting the bottom. One flies over the other’s instruments, and moments later they are engaged in a poetic dance duet. A rock and roll ritual, with music as a motor and inspiration as fuel.
All my days are sold, none of them are free
All my days are them, none of them are me
And if the bars of the cage that I’m banging with rage
Would at once start to fade and invite and make way
I’d be lost
Shake Shake Shake is about feeling that you are alive, in a world where you can hardly control where your attention is going. It’s about music, as an infectious invitation to move and shake off all misery. Such as in the soul, the punk and perhaps every musical movement that represented a contradiction. But above all, Shake Shake Shake is about finding your own, alternative direction together.
