Lil Buck, a star of the homegrown Memphis street dance style called “jookin’”, became a YouTube star after director Spike Jonze uploaded a video of his dance improvisation with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and since then the young sensation has collaborated with everyone from Madonna to choreographer Benjamin Millepied. Along with a DJ and an expert eight-dancer crew, in Memphis Jookin’: The Show, Lil Buck makes his Cal Performances debut, transporting audiences to the streets, the hallways, and the clubs where Memphis “jookin’” was born.
