Anyoung Haseyo! South Korean NANTA (COOKIN’) returns to Singapore, cooking up a bigger storm with the best cast line-up yet – the WHITE TEAM!
This globally acclaimed production chopped, sliced and banged its way around the world in over 285 cities, entertaining over 8 million audiences worldwide.
It is the first and the longest running Asian production staged at Broadway, having first opened at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1999.
“Nanta” which means to “strike relentlessly”. But the show does not require the audience to understand Korean.
It’s a nonverbal show which relies on infectious rhythms and comedy to entertain an international audience, from the young to the old.
Based on the traditional Korean instrumental performance, samulnori, the story is set in a kitchen and revolves around three chefs who are rushing to prepare for a wedding banquet, having received the instructions from a pompous restaurant manager at the eleventh hour.
The theatre is thrown into an explosive uproar with the cooks rushing around the kitchen, washing vegetables, carrying meat loafs, setting fire and…on top of all the pressure, having to teach the restaurant manager’s incompetent nephew to cook as well!
Here’s a look at what to expect at the show:
NANTA (COOKIN’) will be on at the Resorts World Theatre from 3 to 5 June 2016. Bring your family and don’t be surprised when the cook gets you chopping too!
