Sound Series: Kid Koala: Nufonia Must Fall
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 KK Barrett (Being John Malkovich and Her). Critics have tagged it as “modern primitive multimedia” because it mixes live puppet theater, video, a live string quartet, and a nest of electric instruments to tell the story of a tone-deaf and completely unemployable robot who falls in love with its human creator, a brilliant but unwitting scientist. Get ready for romancing the Anthropocene. Nufonia Must Fall is fun for the whole family.
This performance is co-commissioned by BAM, Luminato Festival, Adelaide Festival, Banff Centre, Internationales Sommerfestival Hamburg, Roundhouse UK, and Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival Groningen.
