Kid Koala’s Nufonia Must Fall Live
A graphic novel animated in real time with a live soundtrack. Directed by K.K. Barrett, featuring Kid Koala and the Afiara Quartet.
She’s a lonely office girl. He’s an out-of-work robot struggling to find his voice amidst the noise of the city. Little do they know that destiny has programmed them for the greatest love story of our time.
Nufonia Must Fall LIVE: Equal parts cinema, theater, and musical concert. Watch an amazing team of puppeteers bring the characters of Kid Koala’s graphic novel “Nufonia Must Fall” to life in miniature sets built to recreate each scene from the book. Under the direction of renowned production designer K.K. 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 these components come together in real time thanks to a team of twelve talented performers and technicians.
Premium seats come with a post-show Kid Koala DJ Dance Party. The Kid Koala DJ Dance Party can be added to your ticket separately during the check-out process if not included in your ticket already.
