NANTA(Highlight) by PMC Production

Non-verbal Music & Comedy Performance

The electric energy of NANTA, a one-of-a-kind comic, musical, non-verbal performance, draws inspiration from the traditional Korean percussion ensemble Samulnori. Set in a kitchen, a quartet of chefs transform knives and other handy utensils into musical instruments, thrilling audiences with high-flying cabbage and driving upbeat rhythms that blend a Korean tempo with Western style. Come see what NANTA is cookin’ in this unforgettable performance of the show’s most recognizable highlights. 
 
NANTA has been one of the most popular ongoing shows in Korea since it premiered in 1997, drawing the largest number of spectators in Korean stage history. NANTA’s international debut came in 1999 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and it went on to become the first performance from Asia to open its own off–Broadway Theater in New York City.
