Same, Same But Different prepares for English library tour

Birmingham-based Sonia Sabri Company has announced the 2021 tour of their 'Same, Same But Different', a show aimed at young children and their families. 

'Same, Same But Different' mixes Kathak and contemporary dance with live music, beat boxing and physical storytelling to create a playful, colourful world, exploring curiosities and fears, the times we feel different and when we belong.

The tour will visit 26 libraries and spaces across England from 27 July to 26 August. These will include Stoke, Nottingham, Luton, Birmingham, Black Country, Cheshire, Middlesborough and Reading. The tour will adhere to the most up-to-date government guidelines around Covid-19.

Carol Stump, President of Libraries Connected said, “Libraries have delivered an amazing range of cultural activities online during the pandemic to their communities, including theatre, dance and author events. However, now more than ever, we need to encourage people back into library buildings to connect with each other and to enjoy live arts again so Libraries Connected are delighted to support the live theatre tour of Same, Same But Different.”

Full tour details are listed on the event website including links to each library. Those interested in attending should contact the library or space directly to register or book.
