Cockney Temple Dancer
In this funny and honest solo, Shane Shambhu combines Indian dance and stand-up comedy to lead audiences on a revealing journey of his life experiences. 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, cultures and identity have defined him and his career.
His show is full of oeuvres: stand-up comedy and audience interaction (some so tender), physical theatre, mime and mimetic gesture, storytelling, dramatic and raw feelings alongside the style and form of Bharatanatyam. It is through his body that Shane tells the stories best.”
