Part film, part puppetry, part live music, and 100% award-winning storytelling, Nufonia Must Fall is a multidisciplinary performance piece created by internationally renowned Canadian DJ and musician Kid Koala and directed by K.K. Barrett (oscar nominated production designer of Her, Lost In Translation, Being John Malkovich)

A tone-deaf robot, fearful of his growing obsolescence, tries to woo an office worker with his love songs in prolific producer and turntablist Kid Koala’s (Gorillaz, Deltron 3030) bold adaptation of his tender, and entirely wordless, 2003 graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall. Collaborating with Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett, Kid Koala enlists a team of puppeteers to stage the circuit-bent amoré as camera crews edit the footage in real time, resulting in a live silent film. Kid Koala provides the mesmerizing original score, performed by the polymath himself on turntables and keyboards alongside the strings of the Afiara Quartet.

“The story itself feels like a mix of Chaplin follies and Pixar charm…the simplicity and sweetness of its characters serve to amplify the complexity of the production” — Boston Glo
