Stomp originated on the streets of Brighton, England. The creators, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicolas were a group of street performers known as “buskers”, trying to catch people’s attention. Attention is what they got.
Busking is an old custom in the UK, dating back to booth theaters erected at village fairs in the Middle Ages. Luke and Steve updated this custom and created a modern symbiotic marriage between movement and music.

find the show interesting in an abstract way. The performers were rhythmically gifted and quite coordinated on stage. Personally it wasn’t quite my style, although I did recognize their talents and abilities. This performance, too me, should be taken in a small dose, definitely not for an hour and fifteen minutes. With all this said, I’m sure you can decide if Stomp is a performance for you, because it wasn’t for me!
