Dance for World Community 2017

Jookin’ is a form of dance that originated in Memphis in the 1980s. Originally a way to keep gang warfare at bay, there exists in present-day Memphis a tension between the pioneers of the game and the stars of today’s world. Characterized by in-depth interviews and breathtaking dance footage, PHARAOHS OF MEMPHIS reveals the fascinating world of jookin’ – how the dancers reconcile the past, thrive in the present, and approach the future.
