A high-energy, percussive symphony, coupled with dance, played entirely on unconventional instruments, such as garbage can lids, buckets, brooms and sticks. It is movement made original through the use of everyday objects in non-traditional ways.
What Is the Story of STOMP?
STOMP is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes—and yes, even the kitchen sink. There’s no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

What Is STOMP Like?
STOMP is like a party hosted by eight different and compelling personalities ranging from intense and ferocious to deadpan and sarcastic. There is some audience participation, though no one is singled out. A few parts of the show get loud, but the majority of it is comfortable for most audiences. It runs 100 intermission-less minutes.
