Jungle Book reimagined description

Akram Khan, one of the world’s leading choreographers, returns to Adelaide Festival with a new work based on the much-loved story by Rudyard Kipling.  

With a new sense of urgency, Akram Khan has reinterpreted this familiar story through the eyes of a young climate refugee who has been driven from her homeland and arrives alone in a deserted modern city. Jungle Book reimagined follows the journey of Mowgli as she makes unlikely friends in this strange kind of jungle where wild animals claim the streets as their own.  

Entertaining, inventive and accessible, with an important message at its core... Khan’s choreography is powerful as ever.

Time Out

Jungle Book reimagined powerfully blends dance with theatrical and digital elements, including state-of-the-art animation and a specially commissioned score, to create Mowgli’s magical world and bring this story to life.  

Speaking to audiences of all ages, Jungle Book reimagined reminds us of the need to respect our natural world and invites us to reimagine a different future.  

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ A blockbuster cinematic experience with a powerful message for us all. It’s truly exceptional.
