The Korean Non-verbal Comedy Musical Performance
Nanta is a Korean non-verbal comedy musical performance that dramatizes reckless rhythms and percussion sounds with a comical twist. It incorporates the traditional Korean samul nori style of music. Kitchen utensils are transformed into musical instruments and the audience is entertained with jaw-dropping performances as the Nanta chefs busily cook away on stage. The highlight of the show is the “Finale” where the cast beat on drums and confuses the audience with the sound of the drums and their pounding heartbeats. In the exclusive Nanta theatres and through the numerous world tours, Nanta has entertained more than 10 million audiences regardless of age.
The show was hosted by the Honorary Consulate General of The Republic of Korea in Hyderabad and Korea Foundation in association with Telangana State Tourism Dept. on Oct 27, 2018 in Hyderabad to a huge crowd of Hyderabadis and South Koreans at Shilpakalavedika. I was fortunate to shoot at an event where the crowd interaction and appreciation was stupendous.
