A radical new way to connect the expression of positive energy through the quotidian realm of commerce and the physicality of dancing. Artist Elana Langer’s “Dance Deal” reminds us that positive movement carries a concrete value. Throughout the 3 day MOVE! event, guests can exchange dance skills for delectable macarons from her collaborating Pastry Chef Andrea Hidano at the high-end French food destination, Le District. This work turns people into performers and consumers (literally) of their own experiences.
Dance Deal is simple:  Do the Dance, Get the Deal.

Dance Deal by Elana Langer is part of MOVE! at Brookfield Place, an interactive exhibition that celebrates art and fashion, curated by Visionaire co-founder Cecilia Dean and writer David Colman. MOVE! features artists from various disciplines, including visual art, performance and dance creating one-of-a-kind experiences encouraging public participation. 

Dean and Colman conceived the movements to represent a new and engaging model of participatory art installations. As longtime chroniclers of art, fashion and culture, the pair bring their passions to life through the presentation of MOVE!, bridging art and fashion in a groundbreaking way.

"One of the important things about MOVE! is that we never call our movements just ‘art’ because that can suggest exclusivity to some people . It’s engaging and unique and fun and cool – and here for everyone,” said Dean.

“We love that everyone can experience MOVE! without feeling like they have to see it labeled a certain way,” adds Colman. “And at the same time, it’s conceptually provocative and layered enough to keep you thinking about it for days afterward.”

Arts Brookfield at Brookfield Place presents exciting, world-class cultural experiences to hundreds of thousands of people for free each year in both indoor and outdoor public spaces at Brookfield’s premier office properties in New York, Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, Toronto, Perth and Sydney. From concerts, theater and dance to film screenings and art exhibitions, Arts Brookfield brings public spaces to life through art.
