Kid Koala
The Afiara Quartet
Directed by K.K. Barrett

“This delightful show delivers.”
—The Guardian (UK)

A tone-deaf robot, fearful of his growing obsolescence, tries to woo an office worker with his love songs in prolific producer and turntablist Kid Koala’s (Gorillaz, Deltron 3030) bold adaptation of his tender, and entirely wordless, 2003 graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall. Collaborating with Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett (Her, Lost in Translation, Being John Malkovich), Kid Koala enlists a team of puppeteers to stage the circuit-bent amoré as camera crews edit the footage in real time, resulting in a live silent film. Kid Koala provides the mesmerizing original score, performed by the polymath himself on turntables and keyboards alongside the strings of the Afiara Quartet.

Created by Eric San (Kid Koala)
Set design by Benjamin Gerlis
