Information

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, reflecting on how race, language, identity and cultures have defined him and his career.

The Patrick Studio is easily accessible from our Thorp St entrance or from Level 3 inside the theatre.

“A Great storyteller, a mercurial trickster with an exuberant love of life and dance”

British Theatre Guide

"A tour de force. It is entertaining, insightful and is a journey of some cultural significance too – and really very unexpectedly funny. This is not something to be missed"

Asian Culture Vulture

“An effective comedian…his understanding of pathos and timing are spot on”

Edinburgh Voice

"How often do you want to see a performance repeated right away, immediately, from start to finish? That’s what I longed for at the end of Shane Shambhu’s Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer"

Dancing Times

"Excellent storytelling and characterisation skills. The audience was on its feet by the end"

Shyama Perera, BBC London Broadcaster
