“A girl Amara has curls in her hair that match her skin tone. No boy in her school has curls in his hair as beautiful as hers. Amara knows she is different” We intend to address the issue of ethnic culturality, music, the identity of the individual).”
The school space is a fundamental place for the formation of human beings, it is also there where the future of societies is built. A space for learning, but also a place of conflict, of barriers and boundaries.
These behaviors do not always reflect the thinking of those who practice them; sometimes they are instruments of affirmation that override a greater good.
This story starts from the most perverse side of the school universe, discriminatory, hostile, without filters, as is peculiar in these generations.
But the girl Amara has much more to tell than to be at the service of egos. She carries with her stories, objects that are part of her origins and of which she is so proud. Her knowledge, her affable manner, her peace, her light are contagious. One realizes that that space is going to be small for the size of her dreams and her knowledge.
Indifference was the best weapon to build affection, create her space, and conquer the world, which grows every moment.
Amara is really happy.
We want to bring to this show the imaginary of traditions, objects, music, cultures, concepts, and unique experiences, uncommon to western society. It will be this dichotomy alien to the knowledge of our children that will awaken their curiosity and interest in knowing more about the planet that belongs to everyone.
