Confessions Of A Cockney Temple Dancer

Shane Shambhu 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.

Nominated for the Eastern Eye ACTA Award for Dance 2018, Shane’s physical storytelling is not to be missed.

★★★★★ ‘Brilliant! Hilarious! Heart-warming! Inspiration! Must See!’ British Theatre Guide

★★★★★ ‘Shane Shambhu’s show is a tour de force, and something very unusual. It is entertaining, insightful and is a journey of some cultural significance too – and really very unexpectedly funny’

'...a solo brimming with more subtle invention and detailed information than I could absorb in one viewing’ Dancing Times

Running time: 1hr 10mins, no interval

Tickets: £16 (discounts: £14)
