ABOUT POP n’ LOCK DANCE MACHINE

The Pop n’ Lock Dance Machine is an extraordinary, new experience that puts you centre-stage. You don’t need to be a great dancer to look like one, and you will have the video to prove your moves.

Participants choose a dance routine from a number of iconic moves, and then get ready to strike a pose! Pop n’ Lock offers a number of dances, set to the hottest tunes. It uses animation, projection, and music to create a magic moment. It’s fun to dance; it’s fun to watch. This unique and fully-customizable interactive installation was created by multimedia artists, Christopher Felske and Irene Angelopoulos.

Pop n’ Lock is currently exhibiting at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s first-ever Teknopolis. It premiered at TIFF’s digiPlayspace 2015 to such great acclaim that the artists successfully adapted it for outdoor exhibition as part of TIFF’s Festival Street programming in September 2015. With over 14,000 visitors to digiPlayspace over the course of the six-week exhibition, and thousands more during the four-day outdoor event, people were lining up at the Dance Machine to get in on the action, and then post their own personal dance videos to social media. It will be exhibiting in the UK, at the Eureka! Children’s museum in the latter half of 2017.
