This work allows us to discover Paul-André Fortier’s major choreography Solo 30×30. Since 2006, the artist has travelled the world and performed for 30 minutes, for 30 consecutive days in different sites, all of them unusual for dance: a warehouse rooftop in Nancy, a bridge in Newcastle, a vacant lot in downtown Montréal, public squares in Rome and New York and Yamaguchi. In 2011, to celebrate the company Fortier Danse-Création’s 30 years, Solo 30×30 was remounted in the Espace culturel George-Émile-Lapalme. For the occasion, photographer Yann Pocreau shot a series of this singular dance. The book includes texts by Marie Lavigne, Louise Déry and Guylaine Massoutre, as well as a selection of images from the photographic archives by photographers from all over the world.
