The project, in collaboration with Guillermo Rozenthuler, is run by Tizina and Sam for the elderly who are affected by motor neurone disease.

The participants are led in warm-up exercises and in singing activities. These activities call back to memory songs and tracks that are known to the participants (in different languages).  They also do body percussion as a group and this is based in play, rhythm and intrapersonal  / interpersonal work.
