In 1991, Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell created the precussion group STOMP to create physical theater performances incorporating rhythms, acrobatics, and pantomime using the body and everyday items.. It makes something gorgeous out of something usual.
The turmoil of city life becomes the source of extremely contagious rhythm and wonder as brooms are turned into instruments and handclapping is used as a means of communication. Rhythm is the only native tongue as eight talented performers take the audience on a trip through sound.
Almost 30 years ago, STOMP began captivating people all over the world with its special brand of rhythm, movement, physical comedy, dance, and now it is your chance to take it all in. It is a visual experience unlike any other, proving to the world that even the most inane items, such as plastic bags, bin lids, brooms, and the kitchen sink, can be given new life through the power of performance.
STOMP has been awarded an Obie, an Emmy (for the HBO special Stomp Out Loud), and an Olivier. You truly have to be there to see it live and find out why the New York Times called it; "brilliant and very funny: theater at its most seductive."
