Following from the success of both Goldberg Variations: Ternary Patterns for Insomnia and Preludeskydiving from a dream, Scottish Ensemble’s ongoing relationship with Sweden’s Andersson Dance continues this month, with Artistic Director Jonathan Morton heading to Sweden to take part in the premiere performances of Partita no.2 – sei solo.

Jonathan will be joining choreographer Örjan Andersson and five dancers for this brand new project, which underlines Scottish Ensembles commitment not just to the important relationship with Andersson Dance, but also to continued cross-genre exploration and collaboration.

The production brings together two musical worlds: Jonathan’s interpretation of Bach’s Partita No.2 and BJ Nilsen’s field recordings of Amsterdam, captured during lockdown, combining with dance to create an auditory journey that takes the audience at breathtaking speed from current to ancient times…

Performances start at Stockholm’s Dansen’s Hus on 26 November and continue until 5 December, with an additional performance at Norrlands Operan on 1 December.

We’re truly thrilled to be back working with Andersson Dance again, and while Scottish audiences may not be able to enjoy these performances yet we will bring you news and images from the project over the coming weeks.

You can find out more about Andersson Dance and the project on their website.
