Partita is a piece created in a collaboration with the violinist Jonathan Morton from Scottish Ensemble and choreographer Örjan Andersson. The work is a continuation of an ongoing collaboration between Andersson Dance and Scottish Ensemble and follows the works “Goldberg Variations – Ternary patterns for insomnia” (2015) and “Prelude – skydiving from a dream” (2019).
