Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell created the percussion group STOMP in 1991, taking cues from physical theater performances that bonded rhythms, acrobatics, pantomime, the body, and simple items.

Its allure is that it transforms even the most simple items into something genuinely incredible. These things are often found in the disorder of city life but become the source of an extremely contagious rhythm and wonder. Expect brooms to be repurposed as instruments and hand clapping to be a means of communication. The eight naturally gifted performers with energy to burn take the viewers on a journey through groove and tempo, their sole means of communication.

For nearly three decades, everyone all over the world have been intrigued by STOMP's special combination of style, movement, physical comedy, and dance. Anyone interested in the revelatory potential of art should not pass up this ultimate expression of how performance can give new life to even the most common items, from plastic bags and trash can lids to brooms and the kitchen sink. STOMP has been honored with multiple awards, including the Obie, the Emmy (for the HBO special Stomp Out Loud), and the Olivier. You honestly have to be there to experience it live and find out why the New York Times called it "brilliant and very funny: theater at its most seductive."
