With just one hour to go, four comically endowed cooks must prepare an entire wedding feast. Their electrifying performance in Nanta (Cookin’) shows the problems faced by this crew of caterers in a show that features unusual percussion and vibrant comedy, telling a ridiculously funny story without using dialogue.
Marvel as the four performers expertly wield kitchen gadgets and use them to play traditional Korean percussion music called samul nori. The drumming becomes part of the story of the chefs desperate attempt to complete the meal preparations for a wedding feast before time runs out.
Since Nanta premiered in Seoul in 1997, it has received rave reviews and run year-round to packed theaters. It even opened in New York City and toured the globe. Now you can see it in Jeju too.
When booking, you can choose to include round-trip transfer from your Jeju hotel, or make your own way to the venue instead. You also have a choice of seating, with VIP seats available with an upgrade. Be forewarned, people sitting close to the stage may be invited onstage to join the show!
