  • SYNOPSIS

    There is no plot to STOMP. There’s no dialogue. STOMP is all show. Using various nontraditional instruments, including trashcan lids, large barrels and more, this show takes you on an emotional ride where everything is said through dance and percussion. Complex syncopated rhythms and movement featuring the ensemble are contrasted with pieces featuring solos, duets and other smaller groupings of performers. Set in a junkyard like atmosphere, the performers in STOMP manipulate just about anything that can make a sound, including newspapers, fabric, wood planks, metal bars, mesh fences, huge plastic barrels, metal trash cans, hub caps, water and even the proverbial kitchen sink. The communications amongst performers and audience includes various guttural sounds and the occasional “yeah.”  Movement and percussion are the modes used for communication and they are very powerful.  There’s a running bit throughout the show of one performer who marches to a very different drummer. The production also uses choreographed lighting to effectively augment the performance. The show builds and cascades, moves and, at times, finds stillness. Ultimately, it reaches a resounding finale. STOMP is powerful entertainment that has been imitated but never duplicated.
