Today’s chess (music) videos
CHECKMATE is a collaborative piece between two dancers; Sufri Juwahir (Singapore) and Sheriden Newman (Australia / Singapore).
The Maya Dance Theatre draws influence from Asian tradition and aesthetics. In this particular dance, much like in a game of chess, both players strategize the game by limiting each other’s moves till the very end. This duet explores the tension between two bodies in space, specifically a special relationship in midst of a heated argument.
CHECKMATE displays the choices and applied strategies undertaken by both men and women with the presence of undulating tension between the two. Does the final decision resolve the conflict between them? What happens after?
