Jungle Book reimagined

An Akram Khan Company Production Presented by Canadian Stage

By Akram Khan

A stunning piece of contemporary dance that the whole family will love

The world-renowned Akram Khan Company visits Toronto for three days only this October with the spectacular Jungle Book reimagined. 

Witness one of the world's most acclaimed international dance companies turn the Bluma stage into a mythical world with spectacular movement, coupled with stunning technology. 

This Jungle Book reimagines the journey of Mowgli through the eyes of a refugee caught in a world devastated by the impact of climate change. This family-friendly epic dance work speaks to all generations as a step to remind, to relearn and to reimagine a new world together.

Suggested for children aged 8+ years.

Jungle Book reimagined feels like a
blockbuster cinematic experience with a powerful
message for us all. It’s truly exceptional. – The Stage
Simultaneously engaging, sobering, transfixing,
and hopeful – The Sunday National
