Performance Characteristics

Nanta has rhythms, beats and body movements only.
As there is no language barrier, people of all ages from different countries can enjoy and empathize together, all of which has made the show a successful international debut. The show fully utilizes its strength of not being a show that represents a specific culture or presents ethnic differences, therefore it has been staged in numerous countries.
[Traditional Rhythms]
Korea has traditional rhythms that are used in pungak (samulnori) whose uniqueness is highly recognized by the international community. Nanta makes full use of these traditional rhythms, making the stage exciting and extravagant leaving the audience lost in the performance. Nanta is created by applying traditional Korean rhythms to a modern performance format, which indeed makes the show a huge global success.
[Projection mapping technology]
NANTA recently added amazing video performances which make the show more active and more abundant. Visualizing ‘cooking and Korean percussion’, harmony between ‘tempo and vegetable layout’, changing from ‘kitchen area to fighting area’ for using projection mapping. These can give you the memorable experience. You will be definitely satisfied with renewed NANTA!
[Audience Participation]
Another strength that differentiates Nanta from other non-verbal musicals is audience members’ engagement and participation in the show. Audience members of Nanta often play the role of the bride or groom on stage for a surprise traditional wedding ceremony. Sometimes they compete with one another in a dumpling staking game. At other times, they play and perform with actors, creating rhythm in unison. Their participation makes the show more exciting and empathetic, creating unique characteristics of “Nanta”.
