Akram Khan: Jungle Book, Re-imagined
December 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Akram Khan’s Jungle Book, Re-imagined at Bing Concert Hall on December 2 & 3, 2023
In a near-future world, a family is torn apart as they escape their homeland ravaged by the impact of climate change. Arriving alone in a deserted modern city, and with wild animals claiming the streets as their own, the child soon discovers unlikely allies in this strange new jungle.
In Akram Khan’s new dance-theater production based on the original story of Rudyard Kipling’s much-loved family classic, Khan and his team reinvent the journey of Mowgli through the eyes of a climate refugee.
Featuring an original score, ten international dancers and state-of-the-art animation and visuals, Jungle Book reimagined is a beautifully compelling and vital piece of storytelling about our intrinsic need to belong and bond with others, and placing the importance of connecting with and respecting our natural world at its heart.
