A production at Proteus Creation Space, Basingstoke, is set to explore the complexities of modern fatherhood across continents and generations.

'Fatherhood' looks at the challenges faced by fathers in the 21st century - particularly those with children with mixed heritage.

The production, presented by Altered Skin, will take to the stage on March 7 at 7.30pm.

The narrative is centred around common experiences and remarks on domestic dilemmas with 'humour and sensitivity'.

Creative director and performer Shane Shambhu said: "When I became a dad, the focus of my life completely shifted. I had to embrace a new identity with a different outlook and priorities from my former self.

"I found myself reflecting on my relationship with my own dad, and how being a father and our approaches to fathering were in some respects completely different, but in others, exactly the same. I want to celebrate this fundamental relationship in all its forms."

The show involves Altered Skin’s blend of physical theatre rooted in the South Indian artform Bharatanatyam and multilingual text.

Fatherhood also includes British Sign Language, as well as other sign languages.

Tickets are available priced at £10/£8 conc.
