What do a biker-ballet-dancer, a shopping trolley and a basketball have in common? Stomp on over the the Comedy Theatre to find out. "Brilliant and hilarious", is how my eleven-year-old son described the show. The reaction of the audience would indicate that they agreed - especially considering that it seemed like a quarter of them were kids. 15 million people in 55 countries across five continents cannot be wrong either.
The effective use of humour is what really won me over in this wordless, witty performance. The audience was treated to a complex mix of rhythms and sensory experiences with some interactive participation as well; not the expected confrontation of clanging trash-can lids.
Mix a touch of toilet humour with a lot of rhythm and fun and you have an epic part of STOMP. We dare you to keep your toes from tapping.
No shred of paper, grain of sand or itchy nose is safe from being turned into an instrument by eight talented performers in this multi-award winning show. Now in its 15th year in London's West End and its 24th year in New York, STOMP is a comical 105 minutes of barrel booming highs and pin-drop lows with no intermission.
Trample, clonk, clatter or tiptoe on over to the Comedy Theatre before the Stompers clomp on to Adelaide.
