Review: STOMP

STOMP is a cacophony of sounds produced by common objects in lieu of musical instruments. A mishmash of music, dance and street theater, STOMP is the type of show that you can’t just watch and sit still—you want to clap your hands and stomp your feet. And the good news is you can, throughout the show STOMP provides opportunity for the audience to interact.

STOMP is like no show you have ever seen before. I mean where else can you see brooms, garbage cans, sinks, hubcaps, matchboxes, wooden poles and even Zippo lighters being used to create such strange and beautiful music?

When you look at the set alone, you just know you’re about to have some fun. STOMP is a prop-heavy show and each scene had a distinct, unspoken theme. My favorite scene and probably the most mesmerizing sequences involved cigarette lighters–in the dark. Hands down I could have watched that scene over and over again without getting bored.

STOMP is madness, but organized madness you can’t help but stare at. From rhythmic stick fights to newspaper tearing by-the-beat, trash can stomping, and even multi-performer cross-stage juggling. STOMP offers a show like you have never seen before.

Catch STOMP in Detroit now through Sunday, March 6th, 2022. Or when it comes to a city near you.

Runtime: STOMP is an hour and 45 minutes and does not have an intermission.
