Solo 30x30, a film by Clare Tavernor, 7 minutes
Clare Tavernor’s film presents a poetic view of Paul-André Fortier’s performance and the city of Newcastle itself. The theme is the “pulse” of the dancer, the city, and the person behind the
camera. "I wanted to represent the multiple journeys that we make every day, and look at what happens when this flow is interrupted. Paul-André Fortier’s performance itself blocked this flow and
caused people to stop and examine the space around them." – Clare Tavernor.
