The story of one man's formative years comes to life through comedy, theatre and sublime Indian Dance

Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer is a funny and candid one-man show which uses a unique combination of Bharatanatyam and laugh-out-loud comedy to present a personal journey from unlikely Indian dance student growing up in London’s East End to international performer.

With his inimitable charm and wit, Shane Shambhu reveals his past through a vivid display of characters, lived experiences and comical stories, reflecting on how race, language, identity and cultures have defined him and his career.

‘Brilliant! Hilarious! Heart-warming! Inspirational! Must See!’
***** British Theatre Guide

‘An effective comedian…his understanding of pathos and timing are spot on’
**** Voice Mag (Edinburgh Guide)

Shane has collaborated with award-winning playwright, Jonathan Lichtenstein, Surinder Sandhu (composer) and Martin Dewar (video design) to create an honest and humorous show. Nominated for the Eastern Eye ACTA Award for Dance 2018.
