Nufonia Must Fall

Kid Koala's Nufonia Must Fall
Friday, April 8, 2016, 7:30 P.M.

Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala present a magical, multi-disciplinary adaptation of his graphic novel, Nufonia Must Fall.  The story centers around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence which becomes infatuated with a winsome office drone. Directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Spike Jonze's Her, this live adaptation of the graphic novel unfolds via the real-time filming of more than a dozen miniature stage sets in which a cast of puppets interact. Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara String Quartet provide original music on piano, strings and turntables, tugging on heartstrings and moving the story forward.  Through the performance work's uniquely-designed production in front of an audience, and its heartwarming film noir love story, Kid Koala's Nufonia Must Fall is an unforgettable contemporary performance experience.
