Synopsis

In a game of chess, one of the players is captivated by the beauty of movement. For some instants, aesthetics prevails over strategy. The game takes an unusual turn. The opponents and the opponent behave like both players and chess pieces at the same time. The stage space becomes a giant board and the audience its demarcator. Two games are being played at once: one on a 64-square board and another, which occupies the entire stage, in which the thoughts of the players and the player, the fluctuation of time, probability, triumph and failure … are put into motion. The Endgame is a distinctive take on this millenarian game, a game within a game. It is a kaleidoscopic game, a choreographic world inspired by the rules and infinite possibilities of chess.

Co-production: Azkuna Zentroa
With the support of: Eusko Jaurlaritza
Project selected for the residence programme Amphitryon 2016 at the Azkuna Zentroa (Alhondiga Bilbao).
