A special reading of Kipling’s “Jungle Book” by one of the greatest choreographers of our time.
“This production follows in the footsteps of the original story
and Rudyard Kipling, but this particular edition
it is my very personal interpretation
natural. Mowglis and all friends
the characters of the book are there
in this new edition, according to
in new original music”.
A creative artist who sees with a unique eye the relationship between man and nature. A real creator who connects, through his new work called “The Jungle Book Reimagined”, his important communication with the public, making them aware of the environmental problem, climate change and their natural and social impact. Akram Khan [Άκραμ Καν]one of the most famous choreographers of our time, presents his version of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book [Ράντγιαρντ Κίπλινγκ] at the Athens Concert Hall on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 June at 9:00 pm.
As a choreographer and director, he creates a dreamlike stage environment, with dancers moving between reality and fantasy, giving all audiences, regardless of age, a personal reading of the rare beauty of Kipling’s world-loved story.
The presentation of the “Jungle Book reimagined” project takes place in the framework of the Ngoma cycle events in Megaro with the funding of ALPHA BANK.
