    About

    Bristol’s charismatic Saikat Ahamed (101 Dalmatians, The Tiger and the Moustache) returns to Tobacco Factory Theatres with Strictly Balti after sell-out performances in 2014.

    We thought dance class was good, we thought dance class was English. We were wrong. Now we see you are fully English, because you argue with your parents. In Bangladesh this wouldn’t happen. Well you’ve done what we never could. You’ve left Bangladesh behind.

    Join Saikat as he dances precariously through his dual-identity childhood, torn between the familiar sights of Birmingham and the mysteries of Bangladesh. This is a show for anyone who ever had to grow up, a show about being a second generation immigrant in the UK but feeling like an Englishman abroad.
