Once Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell first got together in 1991 to form the percussion group STOMP, they found artistic inspiration in physical theater performances that coupled rhythms, acrobatics, and pantomime with the body and everyday objects. STOMP is a strange mix of style, movement, physical comedy, and dance that has been enthralling audiences for nearly three decades.
Trust us when we tell you, you don't want to pass up this unquestioned expression of how performance can give new life to even the most mundane things, from plastic bags and trash can lids to brooms and the kitchen sink.
Three distinguished awards—an Olivier, an Emmy, and an Obie—have been accorded to STOMP. One of its main draws is the way it can make the unbelievable seem like the norm. These things are all regular features of city life, but they have a unique, vibrating wonder that STOMP exploits.
The eight artists perform with boundless enthusiasm, taking the audience on a journey through groove and tempo, the only languages they speak. See it live for yourself to learn the meaning of what the Chicago Tribune called; "A PHENOMENAL SHOW! BASHING, CRASHING, SMASHING, SWISHING, BANGING AND KICKING - A JOYOUS INVENTION!"
