From London and Paris to Las Vegas and New York STOMP makes music with brooms, matchboxes, hands and feet, poles, chairs, sinks, basketballs, newspapers and more, climaxing with the exhilarating trademark bins routine, where metal trashcans become drums and dustbin lids become combat shields. The encore engages the audience in a call and response that proves rhythm is a universal language.
This wildly entertaining international show heads to South Africa, in association with BBC First, opening at Montecasino’s Teatro on Tuesday, August 20 and ending on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
Matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more fill the stage with energizing beats at STOMP, the inventive and invigorating stage show that’s dance, music and theatrical performance blended together in one electrifying rhythm.
The show toured this country in 2010 to critical acclaim and sold out performances. The sizzling energy of STOMP is beyond infectious. Almost a decade later STOMP is back in South Africa to share its unique and energetic art form while introducing it to a new generation of theatre-goers.
STOMP finds beauty and music in the mundane. It turns brooms into instruments and handclapping into a conversation; the junk and clutter of urban life becomes the source of infectious rhythm and wonder. The highly talented performers take the audience on a journey through sound, where rhythm is the only language.
Celebrities who have experienced the show include Jodie Foster, Howard Stern, Denzel Washington, Michael Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Bruce Willis.
Created in Brighton, UK, in the summer of 1991, STOMP was the result of a ten year collaboration between its creators, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas.
