Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer

Company Shane Shambhu

Shane Shambhu, Complicité Associate, offers a humorous, honest and engaging bilingual solo with an acclaimed team of collaborators. By reflecting on his personal journey of growing up in East London, learning and performing Indian dance in the UK, Shane plays with the ways in which race, language, identity and culture have defined him. “His show features stand-up comedy and audience interaction (some so tender), physical theatre, mime and mimetic gesture, storytelling, dramatic and raw feelings alongside the style and form of Bharatanatyam. It is through his body that Shane tells the stories best.” Debbie Green, Pulse Review
