The Jungle Book

   Hammer Theater (North 3rd Street, San Jose) (Off Campus)

EnActe Arts

The Institute for South Asia Studies is delighted to cosponsor The Jungle Book: Rudyard Revised, EnActe Arts' latest production of everyone's favorite foot-stomping adventure. Reclaimed, reimagined, and rewritten for our times, one of humanity's best loved tales returns to its South Asian roots with EnActe’s contemporary sparkle!

With lush costumes, music by world-renowned Jazz saxophonist George Brooks, kalaripayattu-infused choreography by Navarasa Dance Theatre, and high-tech projections using work by award-winning Pattachitra artist Avinash Karn, this original EnActe Arts production will enthrall an audience of all ages!

EnActe Arts has also partnered with the Centre for Wildlife Studies, and their director Dr. Krithi Karanth, to bring awareness to CWS’s work in tiger conservation through the show’s representation of the long-misunderstood tiger, Sher Baagh. This The Jungle Book is a story about community-building, centering environmental sustainability and harmony.

Written in the EnActe Conservatory by a diverse group of artists ages 6-60, The Jungle Book: Rudyard Revised shines as a collective piece of wisdom for our times, a story told with joy, authenticity and a whole lot of heart!
