Created in 1991 by one man in Brighton with a single drum, Stomp is a phenomenon that has stunned audiences in 53 countries over 6 continents. The production has also been responsible for iconic television commercials such as Heineken, Coca-Cola and Toyota and even featured in the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
After 15 spectacular years in the West End, the Olivier Award-winning and global phenomenon Stomp will close its doors in January 2018, following 10 record-breaking years at London’s Ambassadors Theatre.
It continues to astound audiences across the world with its universal language of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance. Eight performers use everything from Zippo lighters, plastic bags, bin lids and even the kitchen sink to hammer out an explosively feelgood rhythm and turn urban junk into urban funk. You’ll be amazed how much bang you get for your buck.
Experience the “pure stage magic” (Sunday Telegraph) of Stomp before its last performance.
Final weeks, must end 7 January.
From humble beginnings, an international sensation was born, spawning an Oscar-nominated short film, an IMAX movie, an orchestra and even a Las Vegas show. Now, more than 100 performers work on Stomp worldwide.
OK, so there isn’t one as such. But what Stomp does have by the binload is big personalities.
Even though no one speaks, you’ll really get to know this noisy bunch by the end of the show. Each performer has their own funny little quirks, ticks and mannerisms, and there are moments of pure slapstick as the good-humoured games of one-upmanship get going.
With revamped 'surround sound' music and routines now in place, there’s never been a better time to see this booming great show.
We recommend patrons arrive at least 15mins in advance of the show start time.
