This energetic stage performance was filmed in HD in 2008 in Brighton, England, the birthplace of STOMP. The production utilizes 11 hi-definition cameras with an all digital 7.1 surround sound mix to create one of the best stage performances ever on DVD.
STOMP has grown from its beginnings on the streets of Europe into an international sensation, with touring productions all over the world, and long running shows in London, Las Vegas and Broadway. This special performance brings together performers from the West End, New York and Vegas for the very first time, to STOMP's home town and the theatre where many of the routines were originated: Brighton Dome.
Instantly recognizable household objects take on new life as percussive instruments in the hands of each of the Stompers: brooms, cigarette lighters, water bottles, basketballs and more are each explored for their sonic potential. Dance meets rhythm in "Hands and Feet" and Stomp takes to the air in "Suspension", where the entire set becomes a musical instrument. The show climaxes with the "Bins" routine: a ten-minute rhythm extravaganza in itself, using trash-cans, oil drums and plastic drums with trash-can lid combat sequences.
Combining physical comedy and athleticism, it's a highly charged performance from an idiosyncratic group who could only come frmo the world of STOMP. Some of show has more adult humor and may not be as appropriate for young students.
