The project was born from the encounter between Alice Akus Padovani, director of the company and the amygdala Meike Clarelli musician, choir director of women migrants The Chemin des femmes and singing teacher sensitive. Akus named after a warrior woman, she arrived in Italy from Ghana two years ago, whose singing and dancing which, during the choir practice of migrant women, are able to evoke the birth of a scenic form. Akus explores the expressive resources and heritage voice generated by a group of women from different backgrounds and artistic culture. A hotbed of experimentation of new languages, through which to express emotions, strengths, weaknesses, joys and sorrows. From this site, which intersects actions of music and theater, he was born a form of "musical work": a theatrical concert.
