Premiere Robin Howard Theatre-The Place, London. March 2016.


The Endgame (small move) is a game of chess on stage, which modulates the action of the dancers. The dancers are players and pieces of the game simultaneously and alternatively.

Chess organizes movements of pieces in a delimited space; choreography does something similar. From this starting point a multiplicity of analogies unfold.
