Laugh yourself silly at the Cookin' Nanta show with Go City®

This hugely entertaining show has quite a pedigree, having been performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and on Broadway.

It tells the story of three cooks preparing a wedding feast under, shall we say, challenging circumstances, and is the longest running show in Korea’s history. Expect high-octane high jinks including acrobatics, conjuring tricks, knife juggling and lashings of slapstick comedy.

The show is held together by traditional Korean samul nori music, the distinctive beats and rhythms of which are belted out using kitchen utensils and other everyday items. Trust us when we say that pots, pans, knives and chopping boards have never sounded so good.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and, who knows, you may even find yourself balancing plates, piling stacks of dumplings or becoming the bride and groom at a traditional Korean wedding ceremony. With Cookin’ Nanta, audience participation is all part of the cacophonous culinary chaos!
