Chaddick Dance Theater Part III: A Gambit

'A Gambit'. Although the title doesn't give anything away of the story represented by this choreography, the dance itself has a very clear theme: rivalry.
Three women are trying to beat each other in terms of beauty and attractivity. The three main characters all have a different personality but are showing off their equal obsessions for beauty by wearing the same striking and colourful skirts.
At the end, two of the three girls show that beauty isn't the most important variable by taking off their skirts. By doing this the real figures and curves of their bodies become clear which gives this story both a literal and figurative dimension.
