Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala presents a magical, multidisciplinary adaptation of his graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall. The story centers around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence and infatuated with a winsome office drone. Directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Her, this live adaptation unfolds via real-time filming of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets. Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide live scoring on piano, strings, and turntables.
Kid Koala has toured with artists such as Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, Arcade Fire, Money Mark, A Tribe Called Quest, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He has contributed to film scores for Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Looper, The Great Gatsby and Baby Driver.
