Collaborations: Spike Jonze, Yo-Yo Ma, and Lil Buck




The occasion: A benefit for the arts in public schools.

The musician: Cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

The dancer: LA/Memphis street dancer Lil Buck.

The camera: Director Spike Jonze.

The result: A performance that is also the best possible argument for the cause it supports. We could say more, but again, the video speaks for itself.
