I have to be honest, I haven't heard of STOMP but now that I have, I am stoked to go see it!
So what's it about?
STOMP is the international percussion sensation, that uses crazy props to create an amazing performance like no other. They tap, click, snap, drum, hit, smash, crack, slam, bang, crash, and kick, and now they are coming back the the fabulous fox theatre! The hit brings new surprises this year, the show has added two new full-scale routines with interesting props like tire inner tubes and paint cans!
“After creating new routines for STOMP OUT LOUD in Vegas, [co-creator] Luke Cresswell and I decided it was time to rework elements of our main production, STOMP,” said co-creator Steve McNicholas. “STOMP has evolved a great deal ever since its first incarnation at the Edinburgh Festival. Every reworking has involved losing some pieces and gaining new ones, but has always stayed true to the original premise of the show: to create rhythmic music with instantly recognizable objects, and do it with an eccentric sense of character and humor.”
STOMP began as a street performance in the UK but has grown into an international sensation and has been around for over fourteen years! They have performed in over 350 cities in 36 countries worldwide. STOMP has received numerous awards, sell-out shows, and rave reviews. The young musicians “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-creator/director Luke Cresswell. Stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra.
Critics and audiences have raved: “STOMP is as crisp and exuberant as if it had opened yesterday,” says The New York Times. The San Francisco Chronicle declares “STOMP has a beat that just won’t quit!” The Los Angeles Times exclaims: “Electrifying! Triumphs in the infinite variety of the human experience.” “A phenomenal show! Bashing, crashing, smashing, swishing, banging and kicking – a joyous invention!” says the Chicago Tribune.
STOMP is directed and created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas. For info about STOMP visit their web site at http://www.stomponline.com/
