Indian dance meets stand-up comedy. You'll be laughing out loud!

In this funny and honest one-man show, Complicite Associate, Shane Shambhu combines Indian dance and stand-up 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 will have you laughing out loud as he reveals his past through a vivid display of characters, lived experiences and comical stories. He rips up ideas of race, language and culture and re-imagines them to leave you with gestures of hope, reflecting on how they have defined him and his career.

This is no Bollywood ‘raga to riches’ story, this is the real deal.
