International percussion sensation STOMP will make its Abbotsford premiere at the Abbotsford Centre on Saturday, January 26th, 2019.
From its beginnings as a street performance in the UK, STOMP has grown into an international sensation over the past 20 years. They’ve performed in more than 50 countries and in front of more than 24 million people.
STOMP continues its phenomenal run with four global productions: the ongoing sell-out production at New York’s Orpheum Theatre, a permanent London company, and North American and European tours.
They always bring fresh concepts to the stage and dazzle audiences with the props they bring to life.
The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-founder/director Luke Cresswell. A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression. Both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band.
Synchronized stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra, eight Zippo lighters flip open and closed to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion.
They simply use everything you can imagine.
Awards Won By STOMP
STOMP has won a number of awards, including the Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London’s Tony Award), a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience and a Special Citation from Best Plays.
