Same Difference Arts was created in 2015 to make outdoor theatre and performance which is both interactive and engaging for audiences. Our ethos is to combine street theatre skills with contemporary art practice to create work which links audience to their immediate environment. Since our beginning, Same Difference Arts has continued to invent unique and exciting projects which have toured all across the UK.
Since 2019 Same Difference have been taking their wildly successful outdoor shows into non traditional indoor spaces for rural touring. We are excited to expand this to the Rural Touring Network
The company is headed by Natasha Glew (BA, MA), who trained in physical theatre and has worked as a freelance performer in street theatre for the past five years. She is inspired by such artistes as Francis Alys, Heath Robinson, Invisible Flock and Wild Works.
In 2015, Bradford Festival commissioned the creation of A Few Feet Up. You can see a photograph of the debut of the periscope in practice at the 2015 Bradford Festival here.
