|STOMP appears at Sangamon Auditorium Monday, January 26 at 7:30 PM|
I have a theory that STOMP has thrived for so long because it really is such a great gateway show for audience members who may not necessarily think they are the "type" who attends live events. The show makes great "wow" moments out of everyday people and things, proving that *nothing* is "everyday."
The show also communicates effectively across language barriers, as no words are used, but instead the performers use objects and movements to communicate ideas. It is a show for which it is thrilling to be in the audience, having a communal experience with everyone else in the room as you laugh and gasp at the same moments...again, with no words ever being spoken.
Past STOMP audiences should be pleased to know that while the show is mostly the show you remember from the past, some sections of the show have been updated and restructured and two new full-scale routines, utilizing props including tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans.
