Shane Shambhu: Fatherhood

About

Being a father in the 21st century is complicated. Being the father of a young son of mixed South Indian, Turkish & Austrian heritage, even more so. Bringing together physical theatre rooted in the Indian performing artform Bharatanatyam and multilingual spoken text and sign languages, Fatherhood explores the cultural & gender expectations on fathers and what it means to be responsible for a child navigating an increasingly complex world.

Drawing from personal experience with contributions from participants from differing cultural backgrounds, the piece also explores how the migrant experience has influenced fathers and fathering across different generations.

The piece features three characters, each reflecting different experiences of fatherhood in their own individual performance language to create three different narratives leading to a highly dynamic and original work.

All performances include integral captions.

*Matinee for Parents and Babies: Specially for parents with babies/ toddlers, the 2pm performance will be more relaxed. No need to worry about your child making noise, needing to be fed, taken out to be changed or just picked up and walked around a bit.

(Babies/ Children are of course welcome at the evening performance as well!)

Fatherhood is supported by Arts Council England, In Good Company, The Sir Barry Jackson Trust and FABRIC
