Nanta! is a blast. The show is done entirely without words. The cast pounds drums, beats out rhythms with cleavers, juggles plates, makes fun of kung fu movies and most other stuff. Nanta! Also manages to incorporate elements from the Korean cultural heritages of samulnori and Buddhist ceremony.

Tour Course Information

Nanta Performance

Nanta Theater is the permanent home of the first Korean non-verbal performance called ‘Nanta.’ Nanta is a hybrid artwork, the combination of a traditional Korean folk performance called ‘Samulnori’ and Western forms of performance. On the stage is a giant kitchen, where four cooks appear and start cooking dishes for a wedding reception. In the process, they perform Samulnori using the various cooking utensils, such as pots, pans, and plates, etc. It was a big hit from the moment it opened, due to the power and speed of the performance. Though mainly consisting of rhythm and beats, its clever plot makes it enjoyable for people of all ages and backgrounds. It received high praise for its performance in other countries, and now has a foreign audience of about 70-80%. A theater was built exclusively for Nanta in Gangbuk in 2000, but a second one was built in Gangnam due to the overwhelming number of patrons. The Gangnam Theater was opened in April of 2002. The Gangbuk Theater has a capacity of 291, while the Gangnam Theater has a capacity of 293.
