The San Leandro School District and the City of San Leandro are pleased to announce the return of the Oakland Ballet Company to the Arts Education Center in their performance of Jangala, a75-minute 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 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.
For wheelchair accessible seating, please call 510-577-3356.
Lobby doors will open at 6:00 pm, program begins at 7:00 pm. Event subject to capacity, please come early to ensure a seat.
