JUNGLE BOOK REIMAGINED

24th February - 1:00 pm

Jungle Book reimagined feels like a blockbuster cinematic experience with a powerful message for us all. It’s truly exceptional.
— THE STAGE (UK)
Experience this timeless tale like never before as one of the most innovative dance companies in the world, Akram Khan Company (UK), travels to Aotearoa with their latest production – a thought-provoking but magical retelling of Rudyard Kipling’s much–loved classic.

Jungle Book reimagined transports you to a near future world, where a family is torn apart as they escape their homeland ravaged by climate change. Arriving alone in a deserted modern city, and with wild animals claiming the streets as their own, Mowgli soon discovers unlikely allies in this strange new jungle.

In this thrilling dance-theatre production, the dancers become the hero Mowgli, Baloo, wolves and even the mighty Kaa. State-of-the-art animation, narrated voiceover and a powerful soundtrack bring the jungle and city to life.

Jungle Book reimagined is a beautifully compelling and vital piece of storytelling about our need to belong and bond with others, and to connect with and respect our natural world.

Exclusive to Wellington for a limited season, this is your chance to witness the brilliance of one of the world’s greatest contemporary choreographers, Akram Khan.
