After his successful Solo 30x30 on the Trocadéro esplanade in 2012, Paul-André Fortier returns to Chaillot for a multi-faceted piece resulting from a collaboration with playwright Étienne Lepage.
 

This man has danced, and he is still dancing. This body has lived and lives on. It is a formal and almost mythological aesthetics, an experience that has clung to him like a second skin. He asked younger people to enter his world: an author, an actor, a punk guitarist, and many more. He asked them to join him, to nourish him, as well as challenge him, push him into unknown territory, or maybe even worse. Because the world is changing. And like everything else, so is he. His styles, tastes, as well as his questions and concerns. And to answer those, you have to talk, move, sing, kick and sweat. And, obviously, dance. Dance over and over again. As if it was the first time. As if it was the last. Play conventions and languages off against one another for a common goal. Don’t look for a retrospective here, or an exegesis. There is only an unfaltering desire for creation to move like time, and leave but the burning present in its wake.
