Throughout the course of the day at this FREE ENTRY event, there will be a number of performers who will entertain the visitors. This year, there will be the most number of performers flying directly from Korea to perform for Brisbane! One of these will include the world-renowned Nanta performance!
The Nanta is a totally universal nonverbal performance. It is presented through music and motions, and there is no language barrier. Therefore, Nanta can be enjoyed by people from everywhere around the world! Since their first performance in 1997 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Nanta received its first award for the best performance. This now world-famous performance has been seen by some 8,100,000 people - the largest audiences in Korean history.
Nanta performances can also be seen at three different theatre locations within Korea. Nanta has also received an award for the Best Urban program in 2009 and it is also highly recommended by tourists and locals alike.
Please make sure that you invite and share this event with your friends and family to enjoy this wonderful celebration. You will not want to miss the wonderful selection of Korean food stalls throughout King George Square. At these stalls, you will be able to explore the nation's authentic and truly unique cuisine direct from Korea.
