– How is it possible that such a noble man is possessed by such a filthy spirit? Maybe art can revive your noble soul.
Gabriel Abrantes and Alexander Melo deconstruct the 1st section of Shakespeare’s ‘Taming of the Shrew’ as a playful, vibrant ode to bacchanalia, classicism, and homoeroticism.
based on the 'Prologue to the Taming of the Shrew' by William Shakespeare
