Oakland Ballet Company presents the Bay Area premiere of Jangala, a dance theater work by Artistic Director, Graham Lustig. Jangala is a family-friendly performance inspired by Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, that fuses contemporary ballet with movement vocabulary from the south Indian classical form, bharatanatyam. The dance follows the story of a lost boy, Mowgli, who is adopted by a pack of wolves and must use his wits to survive in the wild. Lustig has transplanted the action to a modern city, re-imagining the animal characters and their costumes for the urban jungle of contemporary India, complete with disco nightclubs, construction sites, and junkyards inhabited by feral dogs.
