A tender love story between a robot and a human comes magically to life through the imagination of scratch DJ/music producer Kid Koala. Mixing live puppet theater, video, string quartet, electric ukulele, turntables, percussion, and sound effects, Koala has adapted his own, beloved graphic novel for a multi-sensory experience. Directed by K.K. Barrett (Oscar-nominated as production designer for Her), this live adaptation unfolds via real-time video capture of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets, all with live scoring courtesy of multi-instrumentalist Koala and the Afiara Quartet.
“The story itself feels like a mix of Chaplin follies and Pixar charm…the simplicity and sweetness of its characters serve to amplify the complexity of the production” - Boston Globe
