Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer on Friday 11th October 2019
Altered Skin presents
A funny and honest piece of physical storytelling exploring lived experiences and comical stories.
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.
This is no Bollywood ‘raga to riches’ story, this is the real deal.
