During this wildly energetic cooking competition, the chefs put on a masterful display of percussive food chopping, knife throwing, pot banging, and fire-blowing wizardry that will make you laugh, scream in delight, and even beg fora chance to sample their food. Get ready to stomp your feet and clap your hands for a show that’s truly Cookin’!
Cookin’ is the longest-running show in South Korea’s history (over 1.48 million people have attended performances), and has performed in more than 60 countries throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. Asian Media Access just led our youth dance delegation coming back from Korean International Junior Arts Festival, when asked for the show, our Korean friend warned us “Yes, that is real food on stage! If you’re seated in the first few rows of the theater, look out for surprise snacks flying your way.” Come to join this energetic, acrobatically amazing, and fun that crossing all cultural lines – Cookin’.
