Mowgli is finding her way in the urban jungle. With a beat-loving bin man Baloo, graffiti artist Bagheera and a skateboarding Wolf crew, this heart-warming coming of age story will astonish and amaze.

Choreographed by Kendra J Horsburgh (BirdGang Dance Company, Into the Hoods, Sadler’s Wells and Blaze, International Tour) and featuring jaw-dropping tricks from an extraordinary cast of international performers, this is a show for everyone from 8 to 108.
