Portland Ovations presents- Memphis Jookin’- The Show: featuring Lil Buck
January 31 @ 7:00 pm
Renowned dance artist Lil Buck conceived, choreographed and performs in his latest production — Memphis Jookin’: The Show. An ode to Lil Buck’s hometown and the birthplace of this singular hip-hop dance style, Memphis Jookin’: The Show takes audiences on a journey to the fabled city where the art form emerged from a local street dance to an international phenomenon. Evolved from a stylized strut, visually and fundamentally, Memphis Jookin’ embodies steps tied together with slides, glides, toe spins and intricate footwork. Lil Buck stars alongside 10 virtuosic and athletic dancers and a live DJ creating a soundtrack that evokes the energy of the streets, hallways and clubs where Memphis Jookin’ was born.Buy tickets
