KID KOALA Q&A: UPCOMING FILM “THE STORYVILLE MOSQUITO” AND MORE.
By: Lorenzo Gee
From becoming a world-renowned scratch DJ to award-winning graphic novelist, Kid Koala’s level of creativity is inspiring. He’s toured with Tribe Called Quest, the Beastie Boys, DJ Shadow, collaborated with Del, the Gorillaz, composed music for video games, film, and much more. With the premiere of his live film, The Storyville Mosquito set for November of this year, I got in contact with him to learn more about the upcoming show along with some of his other projects he’s working on.
Lorenzo: The Storyville Mosquito premieres this November. Can you tell us a little about it?
Kid Koala: The Storyville Mosquito is our new touring show in the style of Nufonia Must Fall. It will be a “live film” performed, edited and projected in real-time by a team of 15 performers and techs using 20 sets, 5 cameras, 70 puppets, and 4 musicians. It’s a story about a young mosquito who moves to the big city to fulfill his dream of playing music at the world-famous Sid Villa’s Music Hall.
