Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala under the direction of Oscar-nominated K.K. Barrett presents a magical, multi-disciplinary and theatrical adaptation of his graphic novel and soundtrack, Nufonia Must Fall. Nufonia Must Fall’s charming story centers around a headphones-sporting robot, who falls in love. This live adaptation unfolds via real-time filming of miniature stages and a cast of puppets, while Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide original live scoring on piano, strings and turntables. The result of which is that the audience seems to be watching an animated film, but simultaneously sees puppets being filmed in real time.
