NUFONIA MUST FALL
“This live stageshow adaptation of Kid Koala’s first graphic novel proves that watching a miniature robot puppet navigate the perils of love can be much more emotional than you’d expect.” — CityMag Known primarily from his work with Gorillaz, DJ, musician, and graphic novelist Kid Koala captures the sounds of affection, loneliness, and hope in this tender love story about a tone-deaf robot, whose very human emotions surface in the midst of an existential quandary. A bold adaptation of Kid Koala’s graphic novel, NUFONIA MUST FALL, this performance mixes puppet theater, video, electronic instrumentation, and a string quartet as footage is edited in real time to create a live silent film. The DJ casts a spell over his audience evoking the collective experience of feeling, in which emotion is both personal and universal. TICKETS $25–$40
