– Performing PARTITA at Dansens Hus in Stockholm (SE)

photo: Chrisander Brun

PARTITA NO.2 – SEI SOLO is a piece created in a collaboration between the violinist Jonathan Morton from Scottish Ensemble and choreographer Örjan Andersson. Within Sebastian Bach's piece "Partita for violin no.2" the piece examines this historical document from the early 18th century with the help of five dancers and Jonathan Morton on stage.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. Co-production Andersson Dance, Norrlandsoperan and Dansens Hus. With support from the Swedish Arts Council/Kulturrådet, Stockholms Stad, and Region Stockholm. For more info go here.

26-28 Nov 2021 and 3-5 Dec 2021,Dansens Hus, Stockholm (SE).

- Unmasking the modern predator at The Royal Theater in Copenhagen (DK)

photo: Anne Huebertz

THE SOUL CATCHER - UNMASKING THE MODERN PREDATOR will be guest-performance at The Royal Theater in Copenhagen (DK) 1-7 Nov 2021. For more info and tickets go here.

THE SOUL CATCHER is a seductive and deeply disturbing performance about psychological and physical abuse, manipulation, and power - in a powerful mix of performance, dance, spoken word, and electronic music.

"The performance is sharp and unsentimental. It is a mix of performance, dance, spoken words and seasoned with hard electronic music. The three actors do not compromise their expression but deliver a solid performance. The performance fully lives up to my high expectations, which over time I got to the creator of the work, Annika B. Lewis, and also got a great gift at the top of the hat, as the theme was both presented as autofiction and fantastically portrayed. Bravo for courage and artistic pondus.” – Kulturnyt (DK)

THE SOUL CATCHER is produced by Kassandra Production in a co-production with theatre Bora Bora. Supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, The City of Aarhus, Knud Højgaards Fond, and DMF.

IMMORTAL SUMMIT is an expansion, beyond everything we ever thought about greatness. Imagine that Bagger 288 and IC 1101 fades in comparison.

IMMORTAL SUMMIT is a performance that stretches between ideas of greatness and megalomania. A play on the borderline of provocation and play, violence and care, revolution and failure.
