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. Since then Lil Buck, who is trained in both ballet and hip-hop, has performed with Madonna, New York City Ballet and Cirque du Soleil. WHAT MOVES YOU is an intimate duo collaboration between Lil Buck and one of todays youngest and most accomplished classical cellists, Mihai Marica. Lil Buck and Mihai will present an interactive performance that reveals the intricacy and immediacy of the creative process between movement and music, and challenge the boundaries of what the two instruments - the body and the cello - can do. From J.S. Bach to the contemporary sounds of living composers, the duo will demonstrate what it means when Lil Buck says, I see sounds everywhere.
