“delightful…The film, small and tender, could stand strong on its own, but the heart of the production lies in watching it being created.” – The Guardian (UK)
Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala presents a live multimedia adaptation of his graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall. This film noir love story centers around a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence, smitten with a winsome office drone. Directed by K.K. Barrett (recently Oscar-nominated for Her) the story unfolds via real-time filming and editing of a cast of handheld puppets on more than a dozen miniature stages. Audience members can alternate their attention between the live performance and the close-up projection on a single cinema screen, synchronously accompanied by The Cecilia Quartet and Kid Koala performing live sound effects and his original score for piano, strings and turntable.
New! Afterparty with Kid Koala on Saturday, March 5
Kid Koala will have a special performance at 9:30PM at OZ Arts following the Saturday performance of “Nufonia Must Fall.” Tickets to the afterparty are included with the Saturday performance.

Coming to a performance at OZ Arts? Here’s what you need to know!
Every seating bank is custom-designed specifically for the production and offers various vantage points. This way, there are no “bad” seats in the house! Open seating enables audience members to select their own seat and make the most of their experience. Our members (The Critic level and above) enjoy reserved seating, designated by black seat covers. If you are interested in joining OZ Arts as a member, please visit our Support page.
Every program at OZ Arts is vastly different. While our visiting artist programs are not usually designed for children, we have found that many children of varying ages have enjoyed experiencing contemporary art. Ultimately, we encourage parents to do some research and decide if a program matches their child’s interests. Of course, feel free to call or email us if you have any specific questions! And, check out some of our education and outreach programs – created just for kids! – on our Education page.
For the convenience of our guests, a complimentary valet service is provided for all OZ Arts visiting artist performances (TNTs not included – we will have parking directors to help you safely self-park on those evenings!).
Wine, beer, spirits, non-alcoholic beverages and light concessions are available for purchase at all OZ Arts artistic programs. We regret that bar and concession sales are closed during performances but will reopen post-show (or during intermission, when applicable). The bar and concession area accepts cash and major credit cards.
All ticket sales are final and we are unable to offer refunds. Should you wish to withdraw your enrollment from this event and donate your tickets, you may do so at least 24 hours before the beginning of the performance. The full amount of your contribution may be considered tax-deductible. To request a receipt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours before the performance.
Giving your tickets to friends, family, or colleagues is a great way to make sure your tickets don’t go unused! If you are a season subscriber who has a conflict with a performance, or you just have a last-minute change of plans, you can always give your tickets to someone else. All you need to do is have your guest give the ticketholder’s name at the door and they will be admitted.
Thursday Night Things (TNT) is an ongoing series featuring Tennessee-based artists in a more casual manner than our visiting artist programs. Feel free to come and go at your convenience, and enjoy onsite food trucks as well as our bar.
