About Jungle Book Reimagined
From one of the world’s most influential choreographers, Akram Khan’s Jungle Book reimagined is a new, multimedia dance theatre work based on the much-loved story by Rudyard Kipling. Both mesmerizing and haunting, this new spin on an old classic reinvents the journey of young Mowgli. Looking through the eyes of this iconic character as a refugee caught in a world devastated by the impact of climate change, the bold movement, startling animation, and video and sound design bring a new sense of urgency to Akram Khan’s reinterpretation. Jungle Book reimagined speaks to all generations as a step to remind, to re-learn, and to reimagine a new world together. With a new sense of urgency, Khan has reinterpreted this known story from another perspective, through the lens of today’s youth – those who will inherit our world and become our future storytellers. Embedded in the roots of Jungle Book is the deep threat that mankind poses to nature. Khan tells the story of a child who will help us to listen again, not to our voices but to the voices of the natural world that we, the modern world, try to silence. Jungle Book reimagined uses visual technology to turn the stage into a magical world that dives into the myths of today and speaks to all generations as a step to remind, to relearn, and to reimagine a new world together.
