Playful, colourful dance theatre for families. Three dancers take you on a funny, delightful and heartwarming journey, exploring our curiosities and fears, the times we feel different, and when we belong.
Inspired by the well-known Anglo-Asian phrase ‘same, same...but different’, meaning "Yes, something kind of similar, but not the exact same thing”, the performers conjure a magical atmosphere, where we celebrate our individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all.
‘Same Same…But Different’ mixes Kathak, Contemporary and Street dance, with physical storytelling and hints of live music, creating celebratory dance theatre for everyone to enjoy. ‘Same Same...But Different’ has been made working in collaboration with a number of primary schools in Birmingham and London and the children’s creative ideas and lived experiences of being different and belonging have been brought into the show.
Age guidance: children aged 5+ and their adults
