Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer

Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer

Mon 1 January 0001 - Sat 25 June 2022

We all present different faces to the world, but some more different than most. 

In this funny and visually stunning one-man show, Shane Shambhu reveals his secret life learning classical Indian dance when he was growing up in the cultural melting pot of East London. 

Follow Shane’s transformation from “fat kid” to international performer as he rips up ideas of race, language and culture in a bedazzling mix of theatre, dance and film.  

This is no Bollywood “raga to riches” story, this is the real deal. 

“Brilliant, hilarious, heart-warming and inspirational.” ✭✭✭✭✭ British Theatre Guide 

“A great storyteller, a mercurial trickster with an exuberant love of life!” ✭✭✭✭  Voice Mag
