Dušan Týnek is a Czech-born choreographer, and for more than 10 years his company and works have been known for sophistication, expert craftsmanship, and an exceptional level of artistry. Employing tactics of game strategy and seduction, his work Middlegame takes its inspiration from the game of chess and 19th Century cafe life. Exploring ideas of elitism, power, and seduction, the dance considers the manipulation of “being played, while playing along.” This work is creative and energetic, danced to music by J.S. Bach, Carlos Paredes, and Yann Terisen. The New Yorker calls it “a mad party in Victorian undergarments …the internal designs thrill with lovely detail and ingenious mayhem.”
