    Akram Khan Company - Jungle Book reimagined Tickets

    Olivier Award winning choreographer Akram Khan presents a compelling retelling of the classic story, inspired by climate refugees.

    Kipling’s classic story, magically retold

    Dance innovator Akram Khan presents a magical new version of The Jungle Book at Sadler’s Wells. This retelling, inspired by the climate crisis, is a powerful story from an award-winning creative team.

    In the near future, a family is torn apart and must leave their climate-ravaged homeland. When they arrive in a deserted city where wild animals have staked their claim, the youngest, Mowgli, finds unlikely allies in this unfamiliar jungle.

    Akram Khan Company’s Jungle Book boldly reimagines Rudyard Kipling’s story through the eyes of climate refugees. This vibrant show brims with vitality and urgency, and features an original score and state-of-the-art animation and visuals to bring Mowgli’s story to life.

    Jungle Book reimagined has a script by Tariq Jordan, original score by Jocelyn Pook, sound by Gareth Fry and lighting by Michael Hulls. Miriam Buether’s stage design is a mesmerising companion for the ten international dancers who perform Khan’s distinctive choreography, inspired by contemporary dance and Indian kathak.

    This production is a visual treat with a striking message about the natural world and the human need to belong. Book Akram Khan Company: Jungle Book reimagined tickets to experience this compelling story as you’ve not seen it before.
