On the last weekend in July 2019, the Port Area of Javea will be changed into a supersized chess board with living chessmen performing theatre. Since 1996 this event has been organised by the Fiesta Committee of Mare de Deu de Loreto in collaboration with the Town hall and the local Chess Club.
Staged by schoolchildren between 6 and 14 years, this particular style of performance is taken place on a chess board of extensive dimensions and combines chess with theatre, musical pieces and choreography. The viewer does not have to have knowledge of chess to be able to enjoy the performance!
Don't miss this spectacular and unique opportunity!
The 2019 Living Chess event will take place on Saturday 27th July at 22:30. The chess will this year narrate "A family of musicians, quatre monstres i a putxero" written by Raquel Violero and Héctor Cruañes. A fantasy story will unfold, whose underlying theme is the importance of culture and traditions. It will be performed in Spanish and Valencian but is easily visually understood.
