The piece stages a rebellion of an elder daughter, who is denied the throne of a kingdom in favour of his younger brother because she is a woman.

In an interview with Mr Joseph Aka, the Choreographer of the project, said the project is an artistic cooperation between France, Ghana and Ivory Coast, centered on common values of sharing, transmission, emergency and of creation.

Mr Aka explained that the piece involves three areas-training, production and diffusion, which will materialize into a choreography and musical contemporary of afro play with four dancers and two musicians on stage.

He said the play is the first of a cultural cooperation between the three countries and would ensure its sustenance.

Mrs Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts commended the organisers for such a speculative piece stressing that it really exhibited passion and good choreography artistic work.

Mrs Ofosu-Adjare said it is the hope to maintain this collaboration among the three countries as well as use culture to communicate effectively.

Mr Frederick Clavier, French Ambassador to Ghana said the French government was proud to part of the project which has resulted in a fruitful artistic piece and hope to build better relationship between the countries to explore both cultures and values.
