Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer is a humorous, honest and compelling solo show about growing up within the cultural mix of the East End of London.
Named after the gunslinger in the classic 1953 western Shane, Shane Shambhu tells the story of his learning to dance – keeping it secret from his mates – and growing up a ‘foreigner’ even though he was born in Britain.
His part moving monologue-part dynamic Indian dance-theatre is performed against a compelling video projection haunted by East Ham landscapes, with a twist of engaging stand-up comedy and playful audience interaction.
The show can be seen at The Peel Centre in Dronfield as part of the Live and Local autumn season on November 23 at 7.30pm.
