Same Same... But Different

Same Same... But Different

Southbank Centre · 23 FEB - 23 FEB

Colour, dance, music and storytelling combine in a playful family show exploring difference and belonging


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+
