A flute-playing gardener, a choreographer and dancer meet in Johann Sebastian Bach’s music.
Partita is a danced concert where a modern dance expression is set against Bach’s sound world and style dances such as Courante, Bourée and Sarabande in a musical 18th century costume. Conversely, the movement inspires and influences the music and the baroque style. Two worlds are woven together and also interact with text.
