Learn more about how the Made at Curve production of the Jungle Book reimagined has been brought to our stage at our Theatre Day.
You will get an insight into the rehearsal process with Akram Khan Company Creative Associate Mavin Khoo and our Birkbeck Trainee Director Thyrza Abrahams, followed by an opportunity to get a technical perspective through practical demonstrations and discussions on how the production team and cast came together to create the show. This will include everything from dialogue and movement with the actors, to exploring lighting states and discussing the set.
The day will be brought to a close with a live, informal Q&A with some of the cast and creative team.
