“When I saw Jookin’ being done in my own backyard, and being danced by people who looked like me, that blew my mind. I knew immediately: I want that so bad.”
– Lil Buck

“Buck’s power derives from the ability to get to the bottom of what something feels like for him and then to express it to the world.” The New York Times

An ode to the birthplace of the singular dance style known as Memphis Jookin’, this evening-length show chronicles how the art form grew from local street dance to international phenomenon. Starring renowned dance artist Lil Buck (who also conceived and choreographed the piece) alongside ten highly-skilled dancers and a DJ, Memphis Jookin’: The Show transports audiences to the streets and the clubs where the style originated.
