Shane Shambhu Company — Leaving only a Trace

Loading Events

Contemporary Bharatanatyam accompanied by live music.

Leaving Only A Trace uses unique, contemporary Bharatanatyam language accompanied by live music to tell a revealing story shared by many of dual-heritage in the UK.

A young British Asian man decides to leave home to ‘find himself’. While packing his belongings he starts to unravel the past and begins to wonder whether cultural values have restricted him. He realises that he must let go of his past, in order to come to terms with his future.
