Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer

Indian dance meets stand-up comedy. You'll be laughing out loud!

In this funny and honest one-man show, Complicite Associate, Shane Shambhu combines Indian dance and stand-up comedy to lead audiences on a revealing journey of his life. From unlikely dance student to ‘rude boy’ to international performer.

With his inimitable charm and wit, Shane will have you laughing out loud as he reveals his past through a vivid display of characters, lived experiences and comical stories. Shane reveals his secret life as a ‘fat kid’ in the cultural melting pot of East London to international performer in a bedazzling mix of comedy, theatre and dance. He rips up ideas of race, language and culture and re-imagines them to leave you with gestures of hope.

This is no Bollywood ‘raga to riches’ story, this is the real deal.
