Kid Koala’s Nufonia
Must Fall is an astonishing mesh of media magic
guaranteed to intrigue audiences of every age. From its technical genius to
tender story to original music, it is a definite must-see.
Consisting of 14 small-scale sets, an electronic array of
instruments performed by Kid Koala, a live performance by the Afirara Quartet, and
a small army of puppeteers and videographers projecting the performance on a large
screen, this innovative show follows a touching love story between a robot
growing outdated and a winsome office drone.
Based on the award-winning graphic novel by world-renowned
scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala, Nufonia
Must Fall includes a post-show, on-stage, close-up look of how this
masterpiece was produced.
A true artist in every sense of the word, Kid Koala has
released four solo albums and has toured with Radiohead, the Beastie Boys,
Arcade Fire, Money Mark, A Tribe Called Quest, Mike Patton, DJ Shadow, and the
Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He has also worked on the scores for the films Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the
World, Looper, and The Great Gatsby.
Must Fall is directed by Keith “K.K.” Barrett.
Barrett has worked on music videos by Smashing Pumpkins and Beck and was also
nominated for the Academy Award for Best Production Design for the film Her.
