Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer

Altered Skin

Indian dance meets stand-up comedy

Award-winning artist Shane Shambhu combines Indian dance and laugh-out-loud comedy to lead audiences on a revealing journey of his life growing up in London; from unlikely dance student to 'rude boy' to international performer.

Combining his inimitable charm and wit with dynamic Bharatanatyam dance sequences, Shane 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. His story is familiar to all those who have moved cities, migrated from other countries and struggled to create the cultural world of their dreams and lived experience. Suitable 8+

After the show, enter the Cockney Curry House, meet Shane and sample food inspired by Kerala!
