Andersson Dance premieres “Partita No.2 – sei solo” at Dansens Hus in December, in collaboration with Scottish Ensemble and NorrlandsOperan

Andersson Dance premieres “Partita No.2 – sei solo” at Dansens Hus in December, in collaboration with Scottish Ensemble and NorrlandsOperan. This is the this collaboration between Stockholm-based Andersson Dance and Glasgow-based Scottish Ensemble. The work opens at Dansens Hus at the recently announced added venue elverket 26 nov 2021. Partita is a piece created in a collaboration between the violinist Jonathan Morton from Scottish Ensemble and choreographer Örjan Andersson. Within Sebastian Bachs piece Partita for violin no.2 the piece examines this historical document from the early 18th century with the help of five dancers and Jonathan Morton on stage. The process of creating Partita focuses on the literature surrounding the original piece and the performance will present a diptych where the two entities music and text meet, these contrasts will become the base of the performance. The human constant ambition to try to explain music through the written word and the many written interpretations this has created will be the starting point for the second part of the piece. The historical literary material will be processed and morphed so that a new logic, meaning and non-meaning will be created. Musician Jonathan Morton Dancers Jim De Block, Emilia Fridholm, Takuya Fujisawa, Johanna Wernmo and Ashley Wright. Music JS Bach and BJ Nilsen Light design /scenography Chrisander Brun Costume design Jenny Nordberg Co-production Andersson Dance, Scottish Ensemble, NorrlandsOperan & Dansens Hus.
