Festival Tweetakt is an annual arts festival in Utrecht for everyone, with theater, music and art by (inter)national creators.
Combine a live band with dancers and end up with a festively swinging cocktail!
Shake Shake Shake is a dance concert that features a live band of dancers and musicians brewing a festive, rebellious cocktail using their bodies, voices and instruments. Dancers become musicians; musicians become dancers. The musicality of the show is an invitation to move and shake and lose all your blues.
This work-in-progress sees dancers and musicians taking their audiences on a trip to explore how dance can become integrated in a concert. The results of this research will be presented this summer at various festivals, including Oerol.
“A celebration for tomboys and wild thinkers. A compelling live concert gradually flies off the rails in this highly physical dance show. (…) a sublime and sublimated form of gymnastics: instinctive, energetic, not for the faint-hearted.” – Theaterfestival Boulevard
