Premier Mississauga Waterfront Festival June 2014.


An epic dance-theatre piece inspired by the game of chess, checkmate blends stage combat with contemporary dance,  bringing these archetypal characters to life. With two possible endings, you never know who might will win...

Originally premiered at the Mississauga Waterfront Festival (2013), Checkmate has been remounted in partnership with the Guelph Dance Festival's Nooner Series, and at the Living Arts Centre's RBC Theatre.
