Montrealer Kid Koala has built a successful career upon his DJing and music producing skills. Now he is changing things up a little. He produced a graphic novel called Nufonia Must Fall and has turned it into a multi-disciplinary production that he is taking on the road. It was creating using real-time filming of a bunch of miniature stages and puppets. Direction of the film was by Oscar nominee K.K. Barrett (Her). While the film is playing Koala and the Afiara quartet will score the film using strings, piano and Koala on turntables.
The story is about a robot who always wears headphones and is on the verge of becoming obsolete. He has also fallen in love with the office drone.
