Lincoln Center Presents Jungle Book Reimagined
Lincoln Center presents Jungle Book Reimagined. Choreographic auteur Akram Khan’s two-decade relationship with Lincoln Center has produced a half-dozen masterpieces. His latest work, a rethinking of the Rudyard Kipling classic The Jungle Book, updates the original’s colonizer-centric perspective to tell the story of the young girl Mowgli as a refugee child stranded by the cruel realities of climate change. This family-friendly and narrative-driven production features an original score by the BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook, a cast of ten international dancers, and a stage bursting with state-of-the-art animation and visual projections. This is a Jungle Book retold with nuanced beauty and devastating immediacy that expresses a universal need for connection and a deep respect for the natural world.
