When theatre is as immersive as big cinema films without using any words, but yet telling a moving story: Kid Koala’s newest work for the stage with a heart warming factor.

Eric San aka Kid Koala returns to the Summer Festival with a stirring adventure of a clarinet-playing mosquito who moves to the big city in order to fulfill his dream of playing at the prestigious Sid Villa’s Music Hall. On stage, a team of 15 performers including a string trio and Kid Koala on the piano and turntables create a “live animated film”. Using 20 miniature sets, 75 puppets and 8 cameras, this captivating combination of film technology, theatre, puppetry and music allows the performers to tell a heart warming story that is completely free of dialogue, much like early Charlie Chaplin films. After various Kampnagel appearances including stage productions like the 2014 Summer Festival highlight NUFONIA MUST FALL, THE STORYVILLE MOSQUITO is now the most ambitious piece by Kid Koala to date. He is not only one of the world’s best scratch DJs and releases albums on Ninja Tune, but he is also an award-winning graphic novelist, composer for film and video games, and theatre maker. As such, he has proved (like his Montréal colleague Socalled) that beats, puppetry and humour can be used to expand the medium of theater to the delight of the audience.
