“Whether the audience opted to get lost in the music, marvel at the live puppetry or simply follow the charming, heartfelt silent film unfolding onscreen, the stage inspired awe.” – Fast Forward Weekly (Calgary)
Imagined as a graphic novel animated in real time with a live soundtrack, Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala has created a magical, multidisciplinary adaptation of his book Nufonia Must Fall. Directed by recent Oscar nominee K.K. Barrett (Spike Jonze’s Her, Where the Wild Things Are), this clever live adaptation unfolds via GoPro video with a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets in a tender robot meets office girl love story. Kid Koala and Toronto’s dynamic Cecilia Quartet provide live scoring on piano, strings, turntables and electronics.
Tickets: $25 ($22)
