Stomp 13 Opening Night Sydney Review
STOMP 2013′s two gals and six guys banged crashed and whalloped their way around, on and over every conceivable piece of equipment that could possibly be used as an ‘instrument’ to create rythm and sound. This troupe gave it all, with perspiration streaming their high octane performance could not help but impress as they girated and banged on everything from shopping trolleys to brooms to ciggy lighters to newspapers and more. Comedy aspects were well intergrated and very funny with some having an almost modern Laurel and Hardy aspect to them.
Word of warning though - if you are taking the kids (and judging from those at opening night they will love it) be very prepared to not have an undented saucepan left in the kitchen. - MiSociety
STOMP’s signature high-octane mix of slick choreography, tight ensemble work, industrial percussion, and continuous comedy has been creating adrenalin rushes for over 22 years for 15 million people of all ages worldwide.
Stomp’s eight performers use everything from supermarket trolleys to Zippo lighters, plastic bags to bin lids, and even the kitchen sink to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm. Two new routines that have been introduced in 2013 include “Trolleys” and “Frogs” – wait till you see what they do here!
Stomp fun started back in 1991 at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, with a single drum hanging around Co-Creator/Director Luke Cresswell’s neck. STOMP was an instant hit, becoming the Guardian’s “Critic’s Choice” and winning the Daily Express’s “Best of the Fringe” award, and went on to play to capacity audiences around the world. In 1994 STOMP received an Olivier Award nomination for “Best Entertainment” and won the award for “Best Choreography in a West End Show”. With appearances at the Oscars, the Emmy’s, on prime-time US TV shows such as Letterman and Leno, and most recently at the London 2012 Olympics, STOMP has become a household name across the world.Share
