Based on Rudyard Kipling’s collection of stories, this ballet tells the story of a boy adopted and raised by wolves fulfilling his quest for identity, love and belonging. Directed and choreographed by AXCBT Director Gabriel Chajnik, The Jungle Book is a groundbreaking collaboration with classical Indian dance teacher Sudha Shekhar Devulapalli.
