In a world where reason is a nice façade, the bursting in of non-sense makes us face our relationship with normalcy and allows us to open up to unexplored paths. Somewhere between burn out and brown out, two women, exposed to each other like a palindrome in a distorting mirror, lose their direction and rekindle with their inner wild animals.
Belgian choreographer Karine Ponties, leading Czech creative dancer Tereza Ondrová and theatre director Petra Tejnorová explore the boundaries of subtle humour, irony and absurdity in this award-winning dance-theatre performance. Inspired by silent film actor Buster Keaton whose trademark physical comedy was heightened by his deadpan expressions, SAME SAME moves us with their depth and sincerity despite the hilarity of the form.
SAME SAME was awarded Best Dancer of the Year and Special Mention by the Jury at the 2019 Czech Dance Platform.
