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. 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. A very human and humorous insight into British Asian culture. Echoes of ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ and incredible top drawer Indian dancing.
The show will be followed by a Question and Answer session with Shane, who will serve Indian snacks.
