Nanta (Cookin’) cooks up a storm this July

Get ready for a crazy blend of cooking, drumming and some very sharp-looking knives. It’s percussion in the kitchen using traditional Korean rhythms and acrobatic cooking, all happening at Nanta (Cookin’).

'Nanta (Cookin’)' from South Korea is the culinary version of 'STOMP', where utensils and crockery become instruments played to a percussive beat.

Set in the kitchen, the performance is based on the traditional Korean percussion form of “samul nori”.  ‘Nanta’ means “to strike relentlessly” and there’ll be plenty of that in this highly explosive live performance, alongside dance, magic tricks and even pantomime. 

The action-packed show which debuted in 1997 and has travelled the world, is returning to Singapore from 10 to 13 July at Resorts World Sentosa Theatre.


Following the story of a hapless gang of chefs who have to pull together a last minute wedding banquet, there are plenty of knives, pots and chopped vegetables flying around – all to the beat, of course.

It is theatre, music and comedy all in one, where the audience is even invited to take part in a dumpling challenge on stage, or even play the part of the wedding couple.

It’s the longest running show in South Korea, with four purpose-built stages that have played to millions of audience members. Only the four best cast members get to tour the world. So expect only the best, and try to avoid flying bits of cabbage if you're in the front row.
