About Same Same... But Different

Mixing Kathak, hip-hop and contemporary dance with physical storytelling, the three performers conjure a magical atmosphere that celebrates our individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all. The piece is inspired by the well-known Anglo-Asian phrase ‘same same, but different’, meaning two things are similar, but not exactly the same. Same Same... But Different has been created in collaboration with a number of primary schools in Birmingham and London. The children’s creative ideas and lived experiences of being different and belonging have been brought into the show. The award-winning Sonia Sabri Company is known for dazzling, lively performances created by Directors Sonia and Sarvar Sabri. With dramaturg Sue Buckmaster, artistic director of Theatre Rites, they have created a feelgood celebratory dance theatre show for everyone to enjoy. Age Recommendation: 5+
