STOMP - THE BROADWAY, WEST END AND INTERNATIONAL SENSATION RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA, AND IT’S BETTER THAN EVER!
Tickets on sale NOW!!!
The Broadway, West End and international sensation STOMP is back, and it’s better than ever! Following a sell-out visit in 2013, STOMP returns to Australia with its unstoppable energy and ‘pure stage magic’. The show will tour to Melbourne, the Gold Coast, Adelaide and Sydney from May to August next year. Wordless, witty and fun, STOMP has become a global phenomenon over the last 26 years. Its universal language of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance has resonated with audiences throughout the world, setting feet stamping, fingers drumming and adrenalin rushing for over 12 million people in 55 countries across six continents.
Eight performers use an array of ordinarily mundane objects, from which they create musical magic; an exhilarating soundtrack inspired by the commotion of everyday life. Everything from Zippo lighters, bin lids, and even the kitchen sink are used to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm enjoyed by audiences of all ages. “Trolleys” plays on the everyday experience of negotiating a busy shopping aisle with a fully-laden supermarket trolley, with the piece building to STOMP’s first ever fully-fledged drum corps march: certainly an eye-catching spectacle. “Frogs” explores the bizarre sonic possibilities of a variety of plumbing fixtures: it has to be heard to be believed!
In another spectacular routine, paint cans are tossed between the performers, as they simultaneously build an astonishingly complex rhythm over every surface of the airborne cans. With the emphasis very much on ‘spectacular’, the Stompers are also joined by inflated monster truck inner tubes strapped around their waists to create both a dance of bobbing, whirling rubber skirts and pounding, portable drum kits – the ultimate redefinition of ‘surround sound’. Still remaining is STOMP’s signature high-octane mix of slick choreography, tight ensemble work, industrial percussion, and continuous comedy; as the irrepressible troupe turn brooms into soft shoe partners, clapping into intricate conversations and water cooler bottles into sophisticated instruments
