Three dancer/musicians mix Hip Hop, Kathak and Contemporary dance with live music and storytelling. A magical show that bonds us all.

Performances at the BRITE centre and Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre

Special festival offer for both shows: Same Same But Different and IndoJazz for just £5 (£4 library members, £12 family of 4) - discount is applied at checkout.

Same Same…But Different is a new 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", the 3 dancer-musicians conjure a magical atmosphere where we celebrate 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.
