STOMP, THE INTERNATIONAL PERCUSSION SENSATION RETURNS TO WASHINGTON TO ROCK NATIONAL THEATRE

FEBRUARY 4 – 9, 2014

TICKETS ON SALE NOW

By Kyle Osborne

It’s been a couple of years since I last saw “STOMP” on stage. It’s hard to believe that the percussive performance art created by two Brits, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas in Brighton, England is nearly a quarter century old.

The idea, which evolves a bit each year, but stays true to its roots, is to take ordinary objects (brooms, matchboxes, steel barrels,) and integrate them into amazing dance pieces. The choreography is a unique mix of modern dance and something like those urban wall climbers and fence vaulters who practice what’s called Parcor .

It’s hip, artsy, and as recently as the 2011 Warner Theatre performance, “STOMP” still felt relevant. They’ve literally brought kitchen sinks onstage and used them to sublime, rhythmic effect. And while the show has gained in years, the cast are always young, good looking, edgy, almost bohemian and ever watchable.

The show returns to Washington, DC-this time at the National Theatre, for a limited engagement that runs February 4-9, 2014. Tickets are on sale now, and they run just a bit over 40 bucks. They can be purchased online at online http://www.thenationaldc.com
