Two women in a timeless place. They're Desdemona and Juliet from " William’s Women" , a dance performance by Breathing Art Company. Two different backgrounds, two different souls, they're live fighting and feeling between lights and their shadows. “William’s Women” is a new production by Breathing Art Company focused on the role of the female characters in the works of Shakespeare and its reflection in today’s society. Clarissa Lapolla works since four years with the company directed by Simona De Tullio, creating exibitions, reportages, following the creation process and its development.
