6) Tour description
'NANTA' figuratively means reckless punching as in a slugfest at a boxing match. This 'NANTA' (Cookin') is a non-verbal performance of reckless rhythms that dramatize customary Korean percussion in a strikingly comedic stage show. Since the first performance in 1997, it has created a sensation in Korea and overseas. Integrating unique Korean traditional tempos with a western performance style, NANTA storms on stage into a huge kitchen where four capricious cooks are preparing a wedding banquet. While "Cookin'", they turn all kinds of kitchen items, pots, pans, dishes, knives, chopping board, water bottles, brooms and even each other, into percussion instruments. Audiences are swept by the primitive sound explosions and actions on stage. This wild and funny percussion performance has won international awards and acclaim.
- Performance duration : 20:00-21:30
