About Jangala

A family-friendly performance inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.

Fusing contemporary ballet with south Indian classical bharatanatyam dance, Jangala follows the story of Mowgli, a lost boy who is adopted by a pack of wolves and must use his wits to survive in the wild.

Artistic Director Graham Lustig’s version of Kipling’s classic tale is set in an urban city, complete with disco nightclubs, construction sites, and junkyards inhabited by feral dogs and features an all Indian music score including classical ragas, bhangra, and folkloric music from across India.

Created in collaboration with master bharatanatyam dancer and teacher Renuku Srinivasan of the Tala Shruti Dance School, Jangala’s combination of classical Indian dance and modern ballet, makes this an exciting and innovative performance that is enjoyable for adults and children alike.

Jangala will also feature performances by Nadhi Thekkek and Nava Dance Theatre, a bharatanatyam dance company based in San Francisco, CA. Nava Dance Theatre uses the classical south Indian dance form as a medium for artistic reflection and discovery. The dancers at Nava believe that bharatanatyam, while classical, is a modern medium that can be used to discover and understand both traditional and contemporary themes.
