At its best, 'Stomp' convinces its audience that the background music of our everyday lives is worth listening to.
Jason Zinoman, New York Times
Stomp is a unique entertainment experience. A rotating cast of eight inventive young performers create rhythms and music using acoustic technical skill that is truly awesome: this perfectly synchronized ballet of juggled sticks, drums, and dance is thrilling to witness, and even more astounding to hear.
Is it Music, Dance, Theatre, Choreography or Performance Art? Just call it all of the above! STOMP is a movement, of bodies, objects, sounds - even abstract ideas. But what makes it so appealing is that the cast uses everyday objects, but in non-traditional ways.
So why go see STOMP? Well, have you ever composed a symphony using only matchbooks as instruments? Or created a dance routine based around sweeping? You may have done this a little in your own homes and backyards when you thought nobody was watching, but when you take a group of rhythmically gifted, extremely coordinated bodies with definitive personalities, put them in charge of their hands and feet and all manner of noisy objects such as hammers, broom sticks, garbage cans, plastic buckets to name just a few - you have the makings for STOMP.
STOMP on Broadway celebrated 20 years of performing, just this February!
Opening night: 26 December 2014
Closing night: 30 December 2014
Stomp is suitable for all ages. It's loud and proud, so if you have sensitive hearing, you may wish to bring earplugs to protect your ears
