One of Dance magazine’s “25 to Watch,” street-dance sensation Charles “Lil Buck” Riley has collaborated with a staggering range of renowned artists, including Yo-Yo Ma (in a video directed by Spike Jonze), Spike Lee, JR, Damian Woetzel, the New York City Ballet, and Madonna. In this new, evening-length production, he brings his innovative choreography and gravity-defying dancing to a celebration of the dance and music scenes of his home city of Memphis, TN, and of the namesake Memphis Jookin’ style that launched his brilliant career.
