Same Same…But Different is a family show from Sonia Sabri Company, one of the leading contemporary South Asian dance and music companies in the UK. Mixing Kathak, Hip Hop, contemporary dance, hints of live music and physical storytelling, Same, Same… But Different creates a playful and colourful world, 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 3 dancer-musicians conjure a magical atmosphere celebrating our individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all. 

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 ages 5+ 10 years and their adults.
