Lil Buck and Ashley Bathgate

Wednesday October 05, 2016 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Charles “Lil Buck” Riley brought international attention to the street dance Memphis jookin’ in 2011 when a video of his improvised performance with cellist Yo-Yo Ma went viral on YouTube, resulting in Ma declaring him a “genius.” What Moves You is an intimate duo collaboration between Lil Buck and one of today’s most accomplished contemporary cellists, Ashley Bathgate. Lil Buck and Bathgate will present an interactive performance that reveals the intricacy and immediacy of the creative process between movement and music, and challenges the boundaries of what the two instruments – the body and the cello – can do.

Theatre/Location: Main Theatre

Price: $20-$13, $5 KSC students

“Lil Buck has fashioned a style of movement that is breathtakingly original.”
