Hierarchy and the authorship of the artist as well as the artwork and the role of art in the current socio-political climate are questioned through a vibrant piece of dance. Let Us Dance was first introduced in PLATEAU, Seoul in 2014, and is revived by a different group of participants in Paris as part of South Korea Guest of Honour, Art Paris Art Fair 2016. Let Us Dance was kindly supported by NAVER. Young In Hong In collaboration with Charlie Boogie, Janice Bieleu, Kenza Amara, Scarnik & Sarahi Guaman 31 March - 2 April 2016, Grand Palais, Main Alley.
