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, culminating with the exhilarating trademark bin routine, where metal trashcans become drums and dustbin lids become combat shields. This wildly entertaining international show heads to South Africa this August in association with BBC First.
STOMP is an inventive and invigorating stage show that's dance, music and theatrical performance blended together into one electrifying rhythm. The show toured South Africa in 2010 to critical acclaim and sold out performances. The sizzling energy of STOMP is beyond infectious. Almost a decade later, STOMP is returning to share its unique and energetic art form to introduce it to a new generation of theatre-goers.
STOMP finds beauty and music in the mundane. It turns brooms into instruments and hand-clapping 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.
Seen by over 12-million people worldwide, there have been long running productions in London – 15 years on the West End, Paris, Las Vegas, Boston and San Francisco. In February 2019, the flagship New York show celebrated the 25th anniversary of STOMP playing at New York’s Orpheum Theatre, receiving special congratulations messages from cast members, fans and celebrities around the world including Quincy Jones, Harlem Globetrotters, Jon Bon Jovi, Eddie Izzard and Tommy Lee.
There are up to four STOMP productions around the globe at any given time. STOMP has been touring the world for 26 years, playing over 20 thousand performances in 55 countries on six continents. And as if that isn't impressive enough, here are some interesting facts about the show: in its lifetime, STOMP has consumed over 60 000 boxes of matches, 40 000 brooms, 30 000 bins, 20 000 drumsticks and 35 000 litres of black paint applied with 780 paint rollers.
