The dynamic duo of Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell, who in 1991 made the percussion group STOMP, found their motivation in physical theater performances that linked rhythms, acrobatics, and pantomime using the body and typical objects.
For nearly three decades, people all over the globe have been wowed by STOMP's unique mix of style, movement, physical comedy, and dance. Anyone interested in the transformative power of art should not pass up what is without question the purest expression of how performance can give new life to even the most mundane items, from plastic bags and trash can lids to brooms and the kitchen sink.
STOMP has won three major awards: an Olivier, an Emmy, and an Obie. Its ability to make ordinary things seem remarkable is one of its main draws. These things are common in the chaos of city life, but they exude a special kind of pulsing wonderment, which STOMP takes advantage of. With boundless energy, the eight talented performers take the audience on an adventure through groove and tempo, their only language.
