Robert Wilson's new stage adaptation of The Jungle Book will be on in Paris, Aix-en-Provence and Clermont-Ferrand over the next few months. The visually striking production combines dialogues in French and original songs in English.
Wilson created the show with Cocorosie, a music group composed of two American sisters based in France. The show follows the "man cub" Mowgli from his arrival in the jungle, where he is accepted into a family of wolves, until he comes of age and has to leave the only place he has known as home to enter the world of humans.
