In order to introduce ballet to younger audiences, Pennsylvania Ballet II chose to interpret Kipling’s familiar story through dance. This production was a collaboration between the Pennsylvania Ballet II, Curtis Institute of Music, and White Box Theatre. White Box Theatre provided set and puppet design, construction, object choreography, and dramaturgical support. The performance was live-streamed internationally, and has a five-year touring schedule.
The Jungle Book
The 45-minute ballet with a stunning small-ensemble score and crisply told story is an absolute charmer…. Everyone involved realized his or her creative charge with great invention.
PA Ballet II has been touring this work. Please contact them for information on venue requirements.
