Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) concludes the 2015-2016 Performing Arts Series (PAS) with an intriguing and innovative performance. Montreal-based scratch disc jockey and music producer Kid Koala will present a magical, multidisciplinary adaptation of his graphic novel, “Nufonia MustFall,â€ in the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater Friday, April 8, at 7:30 p.m.
Kid Koala is a world-renowned scratch DJ, music producer and award winning graphic novelist. He has released four solo albums, two graphic novels, and has collaborated with groups such as Gorillaz, Deltron 3030 and The Slew.
“Nufonia Must Fallâ€ centers around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of irrelevance who is infatuated with a charming office drone. Directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Spike Jonze’s “Her,â€ this live adaptation of the graphic novel unfolds via the real-time filming of more than a dozen intricately-crafted miniature stage settings, in which a cast of puppets interact.
Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide live scoring on piano, strings and turntables, musically tugging on heartstrings and moving the story forward. The pairing of a uniquely designed production with a heartwarming film noir love story makes Kid Koala’s “Nufonia Must Fallâ€ an unforgettable performance experience.
