I want to slide my scene

I have a scene called SMenu. In here I draw a simple menu.
In my scene I want to slide into another menu - but I want to use the same SMenu scene file.
So I want to slide into the same scene but with different data.
I’ve tried using the same scene with:

composer.gotoScene("SMenu", {effect="slideLeft", time="1300"});

The content changes but no sliding occurs.
Is there a way to do this?
Can i invalidate the scene?
Will I have to create 2 scenes “SMenu1” and “SMenu2” that are the same but different names?

Maybe have a poke around inside the source code for tips??
