“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.com 

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.
