On view at Mass MoCA, Shake is the second part of Sanford Biggers’ Odyssean video trilogy about the formation and dissolution of identity. The video features Ricardo Camillo, a Brazilian-born, Germany-based choreographer, stuntman, clown and DJ as he walks from the favelas, or shantytowns, to the ocean in Brazil before transforming into an androgynous silver-skinned figure, right out of the Afrofuturist imagination.
