The show involves acrobatics, magic tricks, comedy, pantomime and audience participation. The unifying element throughout the musical is the use of traditional Korean samul nori music, which in this case is performed with improvised instruments, such as cutting boards, water canisters and kitchen knives. The performance is almost completely non-verbal.

    Nanta is the first nonverbal performance in Korea, which is only composed by rhythm and beats. 4 chefs are performing Samulnori (traditional percussion quartet) with kitchenware during the process of cooking for a wedding reception. Nanta is the representative musical in Korea both nominally and virtually. It is also renowned overseas and already 10 million viewers watched this show.
