The ADC Mayweek show is taking your favourite Disney classic and adding an edge of sex, violence, fear and innovation. ‘The Jungle Book’ will transform Emma Gardens into a sexual fantasia of David Lynch inspired madness. Through the jungles humid mist one is never sure where their mind has taken them. Could it be a seedy strip joint, a grimy metal club or are you surrounded by yobs from a derelict urban oasis. Everything is ambiguous; everything is elusive. As we follow Mowgli through the realms of the ‘jungle’ we meet Big Issue selling Baloo, a pole dancing snake Kaa, a libertines-esque rock group ‘The Monkeys’, and a group of elephants in the midst of dementia. The tension is high, with the ominous presence of the bi-curious sexual predator, Shere Khan. ‘The Jungle Book’ promises to be like looking through a kaleidoscope of non-sensical madness. Vividly imaginative, it will use physical theatre to truly bring the vibrant jungle animals to life. On a hot lazy drunken Mayweek afternoon- walking into Emma Gardens will be like stepping back into the psychedelic trip you had at King’s Affair the night before. Enjoy the classic songs and old tale with a bit of spice and humour- it will be the most fun to be had at a Mayweek Show.
