Lil Buck & Jon Boogz

Performance Information

Wednesday, March 18: All Washington Performing Arts performances have been canceled through May 10. Current ticket-holders will be contacted directly regarding donations/refunds.

Renowned street-dance innovators address social change through movement artistry in a performance that is “alternately loose and uncannily precise” (Time Out, New York). 

Two of the most eminent and exciting artists in street-dance today—Lil Buck and Jon Boogz—expand upon an acclaimed collaboration in their first-ever evening-length work, exploring urgent social topics like violence and incarceration while promoting the uniting forces of diversity, inclusion, and empathy. A virtuoso of Memphis jookin’, Lil Buck is best-known to many for the viral video of his duo collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. A master popper from Miami, Jon Boogz has choreographed for Gloria Estefan, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Cirque du Soleil, and many others.

The presentation of Love Heals All Wounds is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support is provided by friends and family of Jenny Bilfield.
