STOMP PRODUCTIONS & GLYNIS HENDERSON PRODUCTIONS Presents The International Smash Hit:

STOMP Live at Palais Des Congres Dbayeh (Feb 8 – 9 & 10)

Combining percussion, dance, theatre and comedy, Stomp remains one of the most original shows in the world.

The performers use a variety of everyday objects – from dustbin lids to water bottles – to great effect, creating some of the most infectious and unusual sounds ever to be seen on stage.

Celebrating its 10th sensational year in London, STOMP is now FRESHER, FASTER AND FUNNIER than ever before, with new routines, new choreography and new music.

This multi-award winning show has a 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 feel good rhythm.

‘IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN STOMP, GO! If you have seen it, take someone who hasn’t and share the pleasure’

Boston Herald

An International Hit, This Show Is Not to be Missed!

STOMP has no words – everyone can understand it. It has little or no melody in the traditional sense, so it doesn’t matter if your taste in music is jazz, classical, dance or pop. STOMP is about rhythm, which is common to all cultures.

Everyone knows rhythm, if only from the beating of their own heart – it is the basis of all music.

STOMP is a group of people, with very strong personalities, who work together using simple building blocks to create something complex , something everyone can identify with: everyone has, at some time, to engage in group activity, whether they like or know the people they are working with or not.

It’s the little idiosyncrasies, the differences between people, and the games of one-upmanship that ensue, which define the group dynamic.

STOMP at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games

It was the largest ever assembly of STOMP performers, with 40 performers from 13 nations representing us on stage. Added to that were 100 dancers with brooms plus thousands of volunteers.

The whole ceremony was directed by Kim Gavin, with musical direction by David Arnold. Kim requested that STOMP play suspended from giant models of Battersea Power Station, Tower Bridge and the London Eye, to accompany the Beatles “Because” and Elgar’s Salut d’Amour. He also requested we take the stage for a 2 and a half minutes worth of iconic STOMP performance: a mix of BINS, POLES and WALKERS on a scale never seen before. In a rare appearance, Luke Cresswell was suspended on the London Eye, and also took part in the featured STOMP performance.

Viewed by 26 million in the UK, an estimated 4 billion worldwide, the Closing Ceremony featured a host of internationally renowned British Pop Icons… and STOMP.
