Lil Buck Goes to China

    Lil Buck is a new star on the contemporary dance scene. The dance for which he is famous, however, is no ordinary form but “jookin”. The dance originated in the streets of Memphis in the 1990s but what Lil Buck has done is popularise and take the genre to a different stratosphere altogether – most notably in his partnership with classical cellist Yo-Yo Ma. From viral video star to Janelle MonĂ¡e and Madonna backup dancer, Lil Buck has come a long way. This short doc chronicles his trip to Beijing with Yo-Yo Ma and Meryl Streep on a cultural exchange between the United States and China.
