Experience the non-verbal madness and masterfulness of NANTA - the original and the best!

NANTA is a comic musical and non-verbal performance derived from the traditional Korean instrumental performance “Samulnori.” The kitchen is its backdrop, and chefs are its main characters. Knives and other kitchen utensils are transformed into musical instruments in the hands of the performers. They thrill the audience with acrobatic cooking shows, a surprise wedding ceremony, and an exciting dumpling challenge.

NANTA has been one of the most popular shows in Korea ever since it premiered in October 1997, drawing the largest number of spectators in Korean stage history. NANTA made its international debut in 1999 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it received an award for Best Performance. Since then, it has been staged in the U.K., Germany, Austria, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, the Netherlands, Australia, and other places all over the world. NANTA has even been seen in New York, premiering at the Minetta Lane Theater on March 7, 2004 and running for one and a half years – making it the first Asian show to open off-Broadway!

An energetic spectacle for all ages, NANTA aims to become the longest-running show in Korea. Its 365 day open-run theater has welcomed more than one million foreign visitors. Celebrating its 16th anniversary in 2013, NANTA is still a must-see event for all ages!
