In this honest and humorous solo, award-winning artist and Complicite Associate, Shane Shambhu combines Indian dance and laugh-out-loud 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 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.

‘Brilliant! Hilarious! Heart-warming! Inspirational! Must See!’
***** British Theatre Guide

‘An effective comedian…his understanding of pathos and timing are spot on’
**** Voice Mag (Edinburgh Guide)

Shane has collaborated with award-winning playwright, Jonathan Lichtenstein, Surinder Sandhu (composer) and Martin Dewar (video design) to create an honest and humorous show. Nominated for the Eastern Eye ACTA Award for Dance 2018, Shane’s physical storytelling is not to be missed.
