The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Kid Koala and his production “Nufonia Must Fall” on Friday, March 24, 2017.
Featuring Kid Koala as composer and principal lead artist Afiara Quartet. K. K. Barrett is the director.
Witness a multi-disciplinary theatrical adaptation unfold before your eyes, complete with real-time film and live scoring. Globetrotting scratch DJ, music producer, and award-winning graphic novelist Kid Koala presents this magical adaptation of his graphic novel and soundtrack, Nufonia Must Fall.
The charming story centers around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence, who through the course of the story falls in love. Directed by K. K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Her, this adaptation comes to life via real-time filming of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets, while Kid Koala and the Afiara Quartet provide the original live score on piano, strings, and turntables.
Kid Koala has collaborated with the Gorillaz, Deltron 3030, and The Slew and has toured with the likes of Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and most recently Arcade Fire. He has contributed to film scores for Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Looper, and The Great Gatsby, as well as numerous TV networks.
Tickets are available at the Moss Arts Center Box Office in person Monday-Friday from 10 am - 6 pm and by phone at 540-231-5300.
