Kid Koala | Nufonia Must Fall | NYU Abu Dhabi | 11 May 2017 at 20.00 & 12 May 2017 at 16.00

This month, do not miss globetrotting, Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala‘s magical, multi-disciplinary and theatrical adaptation of his graphic novel and soundtrack, Nufonia Must Fall. Nufonia Must Fall’s charming story centres around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence, who through the course of the story falls in love.Kid-Koala-NYU-AD-the-luxe-diary

Directed by K.K. Barrett, Oscar-nominated for Her (Spike Jonze), this live adaptation unfolds via real-time filming of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets, while Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide original live scoring on piano, strings and turntables (composed by Kid Koala). The result of which is that the audience seems to be watching an animated film, but simultaneously sees puppets being filmed (and projected) in real time.
