Nanta stirs up Korea’s traditional rhythm (Samulnori), comedy, and drama altogether in a Kitchen setting.
Nanta can be one of the performances that any tourist, expats, or Korean nationals can see without the barrier of verbal language. So, does age matter? No, everyone is welcomed and anyone can comprehend this special performance. Nanta first started their performance in 1997 at the Edinburg Fringe Festival. From this festival, Nanta received their first award for best performance. So far, approximately 8,100,000 people have seen this performance which is the largest audience in Korean history. In 2004, Nanta made an appearance on the stages of New York’s Broadway. Through this performance, Nanta was the leader to open up new doors for other Korean culture and performances. Currently, this show can be seen at three different theaters in Korea. If you are in Korea, this is definitely a must see performance.
Nanta is a nonverbal performance. Since it is presented through music and motions, language will not be a wall for any audience. The performance also carries a traditional beat of Korea. It combines rhythms from Korean folk music with modern music to create an unique but familiar sounds for the audience. They have also overcome the drawbacks of dull repeated rhythms and beats by adding the spice of a storyline with various comic scenes. The storyline of Nanta is well understood by the audience due to their excellent performance. The most charming point about Nanta is the involvement of the audience. The audience can volunteer to be the bride and groom in a traditional Korean wedding ceremony, compete in piling up dumplings, and/or interact with the performers within the actual show. This is something that differentiates Nanta from any other performances.
