Enjoy a traditional Korean Gukak-style performance with a modern twist

Being a non-verbal show means language barriers are not a problem!
Putting a unique Korean spin on the Romeo and Juliet story, FANTA-STICK shakes up the traditional Korean performance with a modern interpretation. The synopsis involving two families, an ethereal drum and flute and even ghosts, is based loosely on the Shakespeare classic combined with an impressive array of breakdancing, martial arts, dance and traditional Korean percussion and string music, with a healthy dollop of comedy thrown in for good measure. You'll be drawn in by the pulsating percussive rhythm and the heartwarming melodies in beautiful ‘Gukak' style (Korean traditional music), redefining how the modern world sees this ancient genre.

How To Get There:
Its my first time seeing this show. I would say overall the show is very good. The show has a very simple story plot, some people might take it abit difficult to understand, but as long as you focus on the story, the act, the show then you will slowly understand. Both traditional songs and modern self-scripted songs are played and sung! Unique storyline incorporating forklore and modern living, exciting dance and multimedia projection, -Dancers were lively, involves audiences in some chapters. The rhythm and the mix of drums and strings are quite appealing. Humours are very well made. Overall would come back for this show again if they are throwing in some new ideas and story.
-Show incorporate traditionals as well as non-traditional / everyday tools (car worshop settings) to make music. Both traditional songs and modern self-scripted songs are played and sung!

We have watched Nanta, Jump and Fanta-Stick. The girls prefer FantA-sTICK SINCE there is a touch of love story in it. The boys love JUMP coz it is more kung-fu fighting.. I love both. I am glad that we decided to watch it afterall. They have a facebook page for non korean. very fast reply
