Jungle Book reimagined

Author(s): Tariq Jordan, score by Jocelyn Pook
Company: Akram Khan Company
Running time: 2h 10min approx

Embedded in the roots of Jungle Book is the deep threat that mankind poses towards nature. Akram and his team reimagine the journey of Mowgli through the eyes of a refugee caught in a world devastated by the impact of climate change. They will tell the story of how this child 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 will speak to all generations as a step to remind, to relearn, to reimagine a new world together.

The script is written by Tariq Jordan, with dramaturgy by Sharon Clark and an original score by Jocelyn Pook. With sound design by Gareth Fry, lighting by Michael Hulls, visual stage design by Miriam Buether, video design and animation by YeastCulture, and the insight of film director Andy Serkis, the visual technology will turn the stage into a magical world that dives into the myths of today.
