Korea's first non-verbal performance with a samulnori beat
NANTA is Korea's first non-verbal show that integrates traditional Korean samulnori rhythm with comedy in the kitchen.
The show incorporates traditional Korean beats by using knives and cutting boards as percussion instruments, and mixes traditional Korean dance with flashy acrobatics. The audience can be part of the show by taking part in a traditional Korean wedding ceremony and trying out their mandu piling skills. The mixture of traditional Korean dances and the rhythm of the samgo-mu (a type of drum) create an explosive ending to the performance. This powerful show can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of nationality, age, gender, or language.
Since the premiere of the show in 1997, the performance has been continuously wowing huge audiences in Korea and abroad. Nanta even got an award for best performance for its international debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1999 and went on to put on productions in England, Germany, Austria, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, The Netherlands, Australia, etc. In addition, the show also made its debut on Broadway and ran for 1 year and 6 months, a record for shows originating from Asia.
By 2014, NANTA had been seen by over a record-breaking 10 million people in the designated Nanta theaters in Seoul, Jeju Island, and Thailand.
