The Shake offers audiences the opportunity to be part of a live performance event. Featuring an original soundtrack, original clothes and some very original personal dance floors, The Shake is one of a kind.
The Shake does exactly what it says on the tin. It's about coming together...to vibrate. Whether you're into ancient mysticism or the latest thing from Cork, The Shake, will resonate with you. And what's more, as we take you up through the gears, you can go your own speed.
Five performers guide you on a journey that starts with a gentle sway, builds to a good old fashioned boogie and brings you back down with a soft landing. The performers move at three different paces, so you can follow the pace that suits you best, from mellow to moderate to wild, or do your own thing. Originals welcome!
Featuring music by the inimitable Alma Kelliher, live vocals by the soulful Jade O'Connor and costumes by the fabulous Rhona Byrne, The Shake is lockdown's hot ticket. We'll provide you with directions to the venue, directions for designing your own shake suit, and a chair if you prefer to dance in your seat.
Warning: The Shake is not a spectator event. The only way to see it is to be it.
