Bigfish founder Sheldon and illustrator/animator Sem are also Monkey Monkey Shake Shake. After finishing an animated kids DVD ‘Little Frog’, they decided to get out from the safety of their computers and start performing live. The first new song was about a grizzly bear. Sem designed a costume and they started dancing in the streets of Byron, Brisbane, Tokyo & Seoul. They filmed each performance, posted on FB and it spread. More songs and more costumes followed. They played for kids but the kids freaked out. The parents liked it more.
Somehow through successes and many failures, they ended opening the world’s largest design conference, having shows at galleries in Brisbane, Byron and Seoul, playing Falls Festival, and are about to play at Splendour in the Grass for the third year running. Sheldon, Sem and Myo (who oversees the craft and workshops) will take you through their ups, downs and extreme randomness with a few songs thrown in for free.
