A highly anticipated return for a show that is a guarantee of total enjoyment, to be seen and reviewed. According to a now historic definition of the "New York Times", a show "Brilliant and very funny: the theater at the height of its seduction"
Without plot, characters or words, STOMP stages the sound of our time, translating into an intense and rhythmic symphony the sounds and sounds of contemporary urban civilization.
With rubs, beats and percussions of all kinds, the formidable dancers-percussionists-actors-acrobats of STOMP give voice to the most "vulgar", banal and common objects of everyday life: trash cans, tires, sinks, brooms, brushes, recycling for use of choice, in an artistic "delirium" of overwhelming irony.
The irresistible experience of STOMP, born in Brighton (England) in 1991 by the creativity of Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, has triumphed in recent years in the most important festivals and theaters in the world, from Broadway to Paris, from Los Angeles to Tokyo . Constantly challenging every convention on gender boundaries, STOMP is dance, theater and music together. It's an electrifying rock event, an anomalous "video clip" symphonic concert: rapid sense of time, visualization of music, rhythmic vortex in image scanning.
It is a circus, a tribal rite, a "pop" culture of noise that merge into a metropolitan work.
It is a majestic urban choreography, which possesses the rhythmic and sensual fury of flamenco and the precision of the percussive game of the tap-tap.
It is the humor of silent cinema borrowed from Pop Art. It is strong, direct communication, able to engage and excite the audience of every language, culture and generation. It is an ecological challenge to urban waste. It is heavy metal transgression and anti-pollution satire. Their mission? Free, through the rhythm, the most common and therefore unknown sounds of the contemporary era. With its unique combination of theater, dance and music, this award-winning production continues to attract audiences around the world. STOMP finds the beauty and its essence in the everyday reality in which we live. Turn brooms into tools, claps in conversation, trash cans in percussion; the disorder of urban life becomes a source of amazement and contagious rhythm.
