De Dansers | Shake Shake Shake

A rock and roll ritual, with music as engine and inspiration as fuel

Shake Shake Shake is a rousing concert that slowly derails into 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 jumps over the other’s instruments, and a little later they are involved in a poetic dance duet. A rock and roll ritual, with music as engine 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 my way
I’d be lost

Songtekst from Shake Shake Shake

Shake Shake Shake is about feeling alive, in a world that leaves you hardly any control over where your attention is going. It’s about music, as a contagious invitation to move and shake off all misery, as in the soul, the punk and perhaps every musical movement that represented a dissenting voice. But above all, Shake Shake Shake is about finding your own, alternative direction together.

De Dansers go beyond themselves with a performance that could easily serve as an antidepressant.”
