Jungle Book Reimagined

The Athens Concert Hall welcomes Akram Khan’s “Jungle Book Reimagined” on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 of June, 2023. 

Akram Khan’s new production (The Book of Jungle, reinvented by the great choreographer and his team), is based on Rudyard Kipling’s much-loved family classic. Akram Khan retells the familiar story of Mowgli with a sense of urgency, through the eyes of today’s children – those who will inherit our world and will become the narrators of tomorrow. In The Jungle Book, man is a mortal threat to nature. Using as the story’s hero a refugee caught up in a world ravaged by the effects of climate change, Akram Khan and his team tell a story that will help us listen not to our own voices but to the voices of the natural world that we, the modern world, are trying to silence. The work is addressed to all generations and attempts to make us remember, learn, and imagine from the beginning, all of us together, a new world. With the help of optical technology, the stage is transformed into a magical world that dives into the myths of today.
