Stomp comes to town this week! They will be performing at the Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Hall.
Stomp, now in it's 26th year, was created by Luke Cresswell, John McAuley and Steve McNicholas in Brighton, United Kingdom in 1991.
The performers use a variety of everyday objects like matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more fill the stage with energizing beats in an inventive and invigorating stage show that's dance, music and theatrical performance blended together in one electrifying rhythm performance.
This an amazing show, I was able to catch them when they performed at Germain Arena years ago, I felt engaged throughout the show and never thought about how much longer till the show was over! A true art form perfecting rhythm, motion, humor and skill into a choreographed evening of captivating entertainment!
The great reviews on line are endless, here are just a few:
-"The musicians take the audience through different themes during this tie, from floor based beats to garbage to light. They add character and a story line without saying a word. Each different scene is done very well - introducing humor and substance to the music. Without giving away too much the lighter bit was so different and unique it really left me impressed!" Sarah N.

- "Stomp is literally my favorite show - I've always loved percussion, and seeing these awesome performers making awesome beats with matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, and brooms is just ridiculously cool. The show itself has a great sense of humor to it, filled with dance, theatrical performance, and awesome beats. I absolutely love it!" Hannah H. Va.
