Citizens feel no European identity: it is as if national identities cannot melt together as one without losing their individuality. As an Austrian living and working in France, Christian Ubl is torn between his birth rite and his adopted identity. However, he is strongly aware of their entanglement: two identities intertwined in one body. This duality has prompted him to investigate the existence of a European identity and its transposition on stage.

The choreographer has created a poetic and utopian corpus; a choreographic and physical language filled with personal touches and freely revisited folkloric traces. At the margins of the conventional view of tradition, the flag and belonging, he questions the notion of identity. By summoning the immaterial heritage of dance, he uses the set as the place of origin and diversion to bring together and manipulate these symbols.

Modernity is tradition in action: its amplification through distortion. Building a bridge between the two, Shake it out is an ode to joy that contributes to the writing of a contemporary choreographic identity.
