THE LIVE SHOW
Space Cadet is a unique immersive headphone concert experience. The audience sits in inflatable “space pods”, listening to the show through individual headphone systems as Kid Koala brings the Space Cadet score to life on a piano and several turntables. Part music, part storytelling, Kid Koala invites you into the world of the Space Cadet graphic novel in a show suitable for all ages.
Prior to the Space Cadet concert, come explore the Space Cadet Gallery. It’s fully equipped with Space Plant Sculpture installations, an interactive Music Spaceship Console, a Space Cadet Soundtrack Cassette Jukebox, and original etchboards from the Space Cadet book. You can even decorate your own Gingerbread Space Cookies. Gallery exhibit will take place in the venue prior to the concert.
THE BOOK and SOUNDTRACK
Space Cadet is a 132-page graphic novel drawn entirely on etchboards. It is accompanied by a "still picture score" of music composed and recorded by Kid Koala. This charming story of an adventurous space cadet and her guardian robot touches on the relationship between technology and isolation, and celebrates the idea of connectivity through family and the cycles that build generations.
