LOS ANGELES (August 15, 2013) – The Korean Cultural Center LA and Korea Tourism Organization LA are thrilled to announce the US premiere of “2013 KOREA IN MOTION - ‘FANTA-STICK’" at the Ford Theatres on September 7, 2013 at 8:00pm“FANTA-STICK” is the dynamic, non-verbal/all dance musical comedy taking the world by storm since its premiere in Seoul in 2009. The show’s title is a play on two words: “fantasy” (for the fantasy world created by string music) and “stick” (for the drumming elements of show). The production is inspired by the touching love story, “Jamyeonggo,” which is considered a classic Korean version of the Shakespearean tragedy “Romeo & Juliet.” The ALL AGES show is the follow-up to last year’s SOLD OUT critically-acclaimed KCCLA/KTOLA production, “SACHOOM.”


FANTA-STICK” tells the story of two families, String and Percussion, who have been embroiled in a feud for generations. The destruction of a “heavenly drum” by the Strings condemns the family to wander the world as ghosts. The only way for them to re-enter the living world is by achieving harmony through “perfect music.” The Strings quickly realize “perfect music” can only be attained with the support from the Percussion. Out of despair, the Strings attempt to steal a book of percussion secrets from their arch enemy. In the process, a romance unfolds between two young star-crossed lovers.       


FANTA-STICK” will showcase traditional Korean music fused with Western percussion and played on oriental instruments. The talented cast will use the universal language of dance to capture the hearts of the audience with awe-inspiring choreographed dance numbers featuring break dancing (B-Boying), acrobatics and martial arts to complement the electrifying soundtrack. The non-verbal/all dance element of the show will allow people from all cultural backgrounds to connect with the engaging storyline as vibrant visuals and uplifting musical numbers seamlessly transcend language.


Be sure to experience the magic of 2013 Korea in Motion – ‘FANTA-STICK’" for yourself at the Ford Theatres on September 7, 2013 at 8:00pm.


Ticket prices start at $25 and $10 for full-time students with ID and children 12 and under. Tickets are available at www.FordTheatres.org or 323 461-3673 (for non-visual media 323 GO 1- FORD). For groups of 8 or more, please call 323 769-2147.
