The electric energy of NANTA, a one-of-a-kind comic, musical, non-verbal performance, draws inspiration from the traditional Korean percussion music, Samulnori. Set in a kitchen, a quartet of chefs transform knives and other utensils into musical instruments, thrilling audiences with high- flying cabbage and driving upbeat rhythms that blend a Korean tempo with Western style in this highlight performance. Performed as part of the First Annual Korean Culture Week, presented by the Korean Cultural Center, Washington, D.C.
