"How often do you want to see a performance repeated right away, immediately, from start to finish? That’s what I longed for at the end of Shane Shambhu’s Confessions of a Cockney Temple Dancer." - Dancing Times

Confessions Of A Cockney Temple Dancer
Shane Shambhu reveals his secret life as a “fat kid” in the cultural melting pot of East London to international performer in a bedazzling mix of comedy, theatre and dance. He rips up ideas of race, language and culture and re-imagines them to leave you with gestures of hope.
This is no Bollywood ‘raga to riches’ story, this is the real deal.
From an unlikely dance student to “rude” boy, to marketing manager to international performer his story is told through a fresh and captivating blend of laugh-out loud comedy, impeccable characterisations and mesmerising dance.
"Confessions...does what it says on the tin: a brilliant conversation on dance and identity, with impeccable characterisation and movement, leavened by infectious wit. A one-man tour de force for today."
