SAMESAME is a festival where people can meet and discover more about each other through performance, music, culture and art.
In the land of the smiles, Thailand, language barriers are broken by locals and tourists with the well-known phrase 'same same'. We humans are all made of flesh and blood. We come the same way and we’ll go the same way. That connects us, because we are not that different from each other. We cherish that connection and manifest it at the samesame festival. Although we are all human beings of flesh and blood, there are also differences. They make us who we are, they make us unique. The duality of similarities and differences is what samesame festival is all about. An ode to humanity in its diversity. samesame is the first queer festival in Breda. A melting pot where queer and non-queer people all come together and thrive in uniqueness.
Samesame will be hosted on the beautiful location of 't Zoet.
Within walking distance of the HSL station and the historic city centre of Breda, there is an area of 46 football fields. An area where sugar was produced until 2005 and is therefore now called 't Zoet. Over the next twenty years, this area will be transformed into a metropolitan area. This means a dynamic and dense mix of living, working and recreation. This new district on the Mark will be of great significance for the city's future. Samesame will be with Vieze Anita, the first official festival to set grounds to 't Zoet.
