Grades 4-12 MTA: Nufonia Must Fall - LIVE!
What happens when a robot on the verge of becoming obsolete falls in love with a leading female roboticist? Described by the New York Times as “pure romance” and “big screen drama,” Kid Koala’s Nufonia Must Fall is an elegant and technically adventurous adaptation of DJ Kid Koala’s critically-acclaimed ‘silent’ graphic novel. Directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Her (Spike Jonze), Nufonia Must Fall unfolds via real-time filming of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets, while Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide original live scoring on piano, strings and turntables. As the audience watches an animated film, they get to experience the creation of the film – live. Nufonia Must Fall is a charming, thought-provoking, fresh, and a unique experience designed to inspire theater-goers of all ages.
