Kid Koala: Nufonia Must Fall
3.16 – 8pm
Carnegie Music Hall (Oakland)
The ToonSeum co-sponsors a multi-media performance with The Warhol Museum by Kid Koala at the Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland on March 16 at 8 pm. Come see Kid Koala live for a magical adaptation of his graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall. Part film, part puppetry, part live music, and 100% award-winning storytelling, this multidisciplinary performance piece was created by internationally renowned Canadian DJ and musician Kid Koala and directed by KK Barrett (Being John Malkovich, Her).
Live puppet theater and a string quartet, video, and a nest of electric instruments come together 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. Nufonia Must Fall is fun for the whole family.
This performance is co-presented with Carnegie Nexus as part of the series Strange Times: Earth in the Age of the Human.
