Same same...but different
Sonia Sabri Company
‘Same Same...But Different’ is a family show, mixing Kathak, Hip Hop dance, Contemporary Dance, hints of live music and physical storytelling, to create 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”, our 3 dancer-musicians conjure a magical atmosphere where we celebrate our individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all.
“*****(5 Stars) Same Same…But Different is a really special show which brings together audiences despite their own differences. Not only is it hugely entertaining but it has a really powerful message at its core. A message that is delivered through the common language of dance.” The Family Stage blog
“There really was a very powerful message of 'its okay to be the same and it's okay to be different' - we are all the same but differences should be celebrated!” Vicki Rainbow Taylor, Relaxed Performance Review
