A Bharatanatyam dance where 3 young dancers bring a chess game climax to life. The dance starts with the players playing the chess game and the pieces come alive …. the 2 main pieces (queen and Rook) come up with the checkmate approach to trap the white piece (King) and successfully execute their plan.
It is self choreography by the dancers Sahana Madabhushi, Deeya Patel and Neha Gorthi.
