BIBAP chefs serve up taste of Korean comedy at The Parisian Macao
Korean pop culture and food are hot items across Asia right now – and both are served up in BIBAP, the action-packed K-pop-themed musical production showing at The Parisian Theatre until April 23.
Korean comedy musical BIBAP is a celebration of the Korean mixed-rice dish bibimbap. The show blends hip-hop elements with a cappella, martial arts and acrobatics.
It tells the story of a cooking competition between two master chefs – Green Chef and Red Chef – at BIBAP restaurant. The duo does battle throughout four rounds, making sushi, pizza, noodles and finally bibimap.
The show is rich in hilariously choreographed dances and fights performed by eight actors, including beatbox performers MC Chef and Rhythm Chef, who mimic sounds from the kitchen.
In addition to enjoying the physical antics, the audience can participate in improvised interactions with the cast, going up on stage to taste the food, help tidy up, and even take part in spontaneous blind dates!
