Museum and Gallery
Suitable for Ages 5+
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”, three dancer-musicians conjure a magical atmosphere where we celebrate individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all.
This show will take place in the main gallery of the museum surrounded by Anthony Bennett’s exhibition Indian Yellow, making for a truly unique experience.
★★★★★ 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. 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!” Relaxed Performance Review
Please Note Age guidance, children aged 5+ and their adults.
