Creative minds came together to celebrate the opening of Jungle Book reimagined—a production that combines dance, theatre, music and animation to tell a new version of the classic story.

In a near-future world, a family is torn apart as they escape their homeland that has been ravaged by the impact of 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.

Choreographed by Akram Khan, the show follows the journey of the young girl Mowgli, a refugee child stranded by the cruel realities of climate change and caught in a world devastated by its impact.
