Nonverbal Korean Performance Show (NANTA)


  • The Nonverbal Korean Performance Show (also known as NANTA) is a nonverbal comedy show that incorporates Korean traditional rhythm, Samulnori, with modern music and drama. This show has taken Korea by storm since its conception in 1997.
  • Being nonverbal, the performance is completely universal, so everyone can understand what is going on onstage. People from all over the world can enjoy the performance together without any barriers.
  • Even though the show is nonverbal, it does not lack excitement, as it has its own dramatic storyline to keep audience members engaged.
  • To further the experience, audience members are even able to participate. You may be pulled onstage during a scene, so be prepared to jump into the rhythm of the show.  
  • There are four NANTA theaters in Korea (Myeongdong, Gangbuk Jeong Dong, Gangnam, and Jeju).
  • Tickets can be as affordable as 40,000KRW, but if you want premium tickets, they will cost you about 70,000KRW. They also provide special discounts on their website for certain shows which are worth taking a look.
