Renowned dance artist Lil Buck conceived of, choreographed and is the featured performer in this creative homage to his hometown and the singular dance style known as Memphis Jookin’, a street dance that became an international artform. His credits: performing with Madonna for her Super Bowl halftime show; working with renowned NYC Ballet artistic director Benjamin Millepied; and becoming a YouTube sensation after director Spike Jonze uploaded a video of his dance improvisation with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. He stars alongside eight highly skilled dancers and a DJ performing to a soundtrack that evokes the energy of the streets, the hallways, and the clubs where Memphis Jookin’ was born.

The Resistance Revival Chorus is a collective of more than 60 women and non-binary singers, who join together to breathe joy and song into the resistance, and to uplift and center women’s voices, especially the voices of black women and women of color, and how historically marginalized they have been in the music industry. When they’re not performing on stages like Carnegie Hall and the Apollo, the RRC regularly hits the NYC streets, advocating for social justice across the spectrum.  Click here for artist's website.

Praised as “the soul of the Spanish guitar”, Sáinz-Villegas has become a worldwide sensation known for his “virtuosic playing characterized by irresistible exuberance.” (The New York Times) His musical interpretations conjure the passion, playfulness, and drama of Rioja, his homeland’s rich cultural region. He is known for his emotive and open-hearted playing, whether he is performing at intimate recital halls, or playing with Plácido Domingo to an audience of over 85,000 at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, where maestro Domingo hailed him as “the master of the guitar.” Villegas performs alongside master percussionist Nacho Arimany and Latin Grammy Award-winning bassist Pedro Giraudo in an intimate evening exploring the diverse and colorful music genres that have originated on the American continents.

Here you will hear those who sing for the seas. From Taiwan to Aotearoa/New Zealand – Madagascar to Rapa Nui/Easter Island. Islanders who share an ancient seafaring ancestry and language. Over three years, Small Island Big Song evolved from visits to 16 Island Nations, and work with over 100 artists, solo artists, elders, community groups and grassroots musicians, all recorded in their homelands in nature using traditional instruments and languages, with each contributing to each other’s songs. The result is a surprising and stunning musical collaboration reuniting the distant yet interconnected musical traditions of the Pacific and Indian Oceans in a multimedia concert performance featuring eight island nation musicians. In 2018, the collaboration launched its fair trade and climate action driven project through social, audio, film, and performance content on a global scale.. Click HERE for artist's website. LU Undergrads attend for FREEclick for more info.

In this rock opera melee, giant thumbs detach to become truly opposable and challenge each other with guitars. Featuring original chamber rock music and an opportunity for audience members to come together to grab rigging, each individual powers a larger movement of giant fingers, a web of connections, a single dance. Hand to Hand encourages shared discovery and making a community of the imagination. Held outdoors in Tamerler Courtyard next to the arts center.  LU Undergrads attend for FREEclick for more info.
