STOMP is an exuberant display of physical prowess, music, dance energy and wit. Using everyday household objects in non-traditional ways; garbage bins, brooms, drums and matches create extraordinary music and dance. With its high energy, fast moving and physical dynamic mix of bodies, objects and sounds, abstract ideas are performed with humor and theatrical flair.
STOMP is a truly remarkable theatrical phenomenon, having played over 10,000 performances to over 10 million people in 42 countries across 5 continents.
The original cast of STOMP have recorded music for the Tank Girl movie soundtrack and appeared on the Quincy Jones album Q's Jook Joint. STOMP has also been featured in a number of commercials, including Coca-Cola's "Ice Pick", numerous spots for Target stores in the US, Toyota in Japan, and Seat in Europe.
STOMP also created the "Mr. Frears' Ears" series of short films created for Nickelodeon. "Brooms", a 15-minute short film based on the opening routine, was nominated for an Academy Award.
They have appeared in their own HBO special and in 2007, Stomp Out Loud opened in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino with an expanded cast and performed inside a new $28 million theater specifically created for the production.
