Join Kid Koala for a multi-disciplinary adaptation of Nufonia Must Fall this Friday at Royce Hall.
Tap into the music and enjoy the fun. Making his way to UCLA’s Royce Hall on Jan. 29, Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala presents a magical, multi-disciplinary 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 Spike Jonze’s Her, this live adaptation of the graphic novel unfolds via the real-time filming of more than a dozen intricately-crafted miniature stage settings in which a cast of puppets interact. Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide live scoring on piano, strings and turntables, tugging on heartstrings and moving the story forward.
Through the performance work’s uniquely designed production in front of an audience, and its heartwarming film noir love story, Kid Koala’s Nufonia Must Fall is an unforgettable contemporary performance experience.
Tickets range from $15-$49 and are available online at cap.ucla.edu/calendar/details/nufonia_must_fall.
This illuminating performance is a different kind storytelling that you should not miss.
