Since its first performance in 1997 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, NANTA is now a world-famous non-verbal performance seen by over 7,000,000 people. Each year NANTA is enjoyed by more than 750,000 foreign visitors to Korea.
Set in a Korean kitchen, the show uses kitchen utensils, cooking and drums to create a raucous percussion performance that tells the story of a group of cooks given seemingly impossible orders to prepare a wedding banquet at the last minute!
The show is currently running in four locations around Korea:
BIBAP is a musical which takes place in a kitchen where chefs make a variety of dishes as orders come in. They happily prepare Chinese, Japanese and Italian dishes. Finally, when the kitchen receives an order of ‘the best bibimbap,’ the two rival sous chefs, the “Red Chef” and the “Blue Chef” compete in a bibimbap cook-off.
Their dishes are judged by a randomly selected audience member, who determines which chef stays in the kitchen to carry on the legacy of making the best bibimbap.
The process of making these dishes is accompanied by a cappella singing and beatboxing, and features dancing, b-boying, martial arts and acrobatics. Bibap is currently performing at one exclusive location in Seoul.
Fanta Stick brings to life a traditional Korean love story but with a modern twist, incorporating western style percussion with melodies played on oriental musical instruments. This non-verbal performance features breakdancing, acrobatics, martial arts, percussion and string music to make for a visually fantastic show.
Feel the heart-pounding, stirring rhythms of traditional Korean music with the unconventional incorporation of pop and rock.
Performing since 2003, DrumCat is an all-female percussion group that has received the ‘2008 Edinburgh Festival Herald Angel’ award and the ‘2008 Scotland Cavalcade Best Unit’ award. On top of being the first Korean band to win at these festivals, the DrumCat Concert also received the Grand Prize in the ‘2009 Korea Entertainment Awards’ in Korea.
A far cry from traditional drumming, DrumCat draws from musical styles such as rock, jazz, and techno, combining these various sounds to create a unique performance.
DrumCat Concert centers on the harmonization of femininity, dynamic sound and complementing pre-recorded soundtrack. Even though each part of the show has distinctly different characteristics and emotions, the underlying basis for the entire show is femininity.
Tickets can be purchased from InterPark.

Original Drawing Show is a popular performance to watch with either friends and families. To cater to younger audiences, Original Drawing Show features a special children’s show on Saturday afternoons.
