Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer

Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer


Wivenhoe Park,


In this funny and honest show, Complicite Associate, Shane Shambhu collaborates with award-winning playwright, Jonathan Lichtenstein to combine Indian dance and stand-up comedy to lead audiences on a revealing journey of his life of growing up in East London.

From unlikely Indian-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 Indian-dance career.”

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
