Kid Koala—Nufonia Must Fall (San Jose, California)

February 13 - February 14

This show is a live multi-disciplinary adaptation of Kid Koala’s graphic novel of the same name. The story centers around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence who is infatuated with a charming office drone. Fifteen people make up the live production, which involves an amazing team of puppeteers, technicians, and musicians who bring the characters to life.

Miniature sets have been built to recreate each scene from the book. Under the direction of Oscar-nominated production designer KK Barrett (Her, Where the Wild Things Are, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich), the performance is cinematically lit, filmed, and projected on a large screen. Kid Koala, accompanied by the Afiara String Quartet, performs his original score on piano and turntable. All of the elements come together in real time. Equal parts cinema, theatre, and musical concert—audiences can watch as an amazing team of puppeteers bring the characters of Kid Koala’s graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall to life.
