Nufonia Must Fall: A performance by Kid Koala

Carnegie Music Hall

$25/$10 members & students

Part film, part puppetry, part live music, and 100% award-winning storytelling, Nufonia Must Fall is a multidisciplinary performance piece created by internationally renowned Canadian DJ and musician Kid Koala, and directed by KK Barrett (Being John Malkovich, Her).

Critics have tagged it as “modern primitive multimedia” because it mixes live puppet theater, video, a live string quartet, and a nest of electric instruments to tell the story of a tone-deaf and completely unemployable robot who falls in love with its human creator, a brilliant but unwitting scientist. Get ready for romancing the Anthropocene.

Fun for the whole family.


"The film, small and tender, could stand strong on its own, but the heart of the production lies in watching it being created."
