The Concrete Jungle Book
HighRise Theatre in association with artsdepot
The Concrete Jungle Book is a brand new hip hop musical which catapults Rudyard Kipling’s classic story into inner-city Britain with live rap music, grime, spoken word and high energy physicality.
As the jungle’s trees become tower blocks, Mo(wgli) navigates his way through relationships, unstable housing and hostile creatures, whilst searching for the father figure he’s always longed for. This is The Jungle Book like you’ve never imagined.
HighRise Theatre have explored ideas for this show through delivering a workshop programme with Centrepoint, a national charity specialising in giving homeless young people a future.
