Same Same… But Different

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 our individuality, diversity and the bonds which connect us all.

A new family show, mixing Kathak, Hip Hop dance, Contemporary and Street 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.

Ideal for ages 5+

Showtimes: 11.30am & 2.30pm

Celebrating 40 inspiring years.

2019 is Akademi’s 40th anniversary year and we want to celebrate the breadth and richness of South Asian dance in the UK. We’ve invited artists to submit information on London-based events that they are planning between April 2019 and April 2020 to form the Akademi Associated programme.
