The audience experiences a live movie made before their eyes, in a production that combines live puppetry, cinematic camera techniques and music. The action is filmed and edited in real time on over a dozen miniature sets and projected on a movie screen, backed by an ensemble of strings, piano and turntables. Montreal-based DJ and composer Kid Koala returns with the enchanting follow-up to his live graphic novel Nufonia Must Fall with The Storyville Mosquito — an ambitious staging of a charming tale that follows the adventures of a mosquito who moves to the big city to pursue his dream of one day becoming a great jazz musician.  

Given the moniker “scratchmaster general” by Spin, Kid Koala (born Eric San) built his career in the early 2000s with a procession of innovative albums that blend pop-culture ephemera, unusual and humorous samples, cinematic layering, and deeply grooving beats. From the release of his 2000 debut LP Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, Koala’s work has been steeped in comic book culture, and in 2003 he published a 300-page graphic novel entitled Nufonia Must Fall about a lonely robot on the verge of obsolescence and looking for love. Now with The Storyville Mosquito, Koala brings a captivating, funny and heart-warming story about chasing your dreams and finding your voice.
