Checkmate: A Tale of Kings and Queens is an Indoor Percussion piece that explores the themes behind the classic game of Chess. Deceit and precision are must haves, if you hope to come out victorious in this epic battle. No stalemates in this show.

DESIGN IDEAS: Paint the floor as the game board; use gambits as drill sets: dress the performers up as Kings and Queens or simply in black and white. Either way, when the King is captured, it’s game over…..or CHECKMATE!
