“How does the chess player’s mind move?”
With this choreography I wanted to convey the tension, the inner movement and the underlying magic of chess, since it is a struggle, but also an act of creative will imposed on the opponent in a transparent way. The combinatorial activity present in the game will be combined with an obsessive search for the most advantageous move in the 64 available squares.
