Director’s Statement:
“It is an honor to present Lil Buck in his first New York one-man show — an exclusive chance to see the virtuoso jookin’ sensation up close at (Le) Poisson Rouge, where he is joined by a stellar musical cast including Yo-Yo Ma, who first performed with the dancer in the original “Swan” video that went viral online. The one-hour jam session will feature that “Swan” duet come to life onstage, and a world premiere composed by Philip Glass for Ma and Lil Buck, in addition to new music from Brooklyn Rider, and appearances by Galician bagpiper Cristina Pato, jazz trumpeter Marcus Printup, and percussionist John Hadfield.” Damian Woetzel, Director and Producer
