Spike Jonze captures Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck performing

Said filmmaker Spike Jonze, "The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck’s own creation and unlike anything I've seen."

From Mixing Reality: "Lil Buck's performance is a contemporary interpretation of 'The Dying Swan' from Camille Saint-Saëns' 'Carnival of the Animals,'" with live musical accompaniment by renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
