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
With a new sense of urgency, the world-renowned Akram Khan has reinterpreted this known story from another perspective, through the lens of today’s children – those who will inherit our world and become our future storytellers.
With spectacular technology that turns the stage into a mythical world, 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.
