Silly Sunday’s chess videos
This is FUN! The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest annual arts festival in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city. One of the theatrical pieces being presented is ”64Squares” by the Rhum and Clay Theatrical Company.
Rhum and Clay present their adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s The Royal Game. On board a decadent cruise liner in 1939, the world’s greatest chess champion is challenged to a match by a mysterious newcomer called… B. As B begins to play, it becomes clear that the game is not the only thing he’s at risk of losing. Because B is not just one person, but four. And they each have their own version of the story they want to tell.
With a live jazz percussive score and their signature blend of ramshackle and cinematic performance, Rhum and Clay Theatre Company tell a story of madness, identity and finding a home in 64 black and white squares. Developed in association with Hertford Theatre, Pegasus Theatre and Redbridge Drama Centre. Supported by Arts Council England.
Here is a silly, but fun, little video presented from Harrison High School as part of Hoyavision spring 2015.
