“A phenomenal show! Bashing, crashing, smashing, swishing, banging and kicking – a joyous invention!” — Chicago Tribune
STOMP returns to the UMass Amherst campus for a trio of performances presented by the Fine Arts Center.
STOMP is explosive, inventive, provocative, witty, and utterly unique — an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered armfuls of awards and rave reviews and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments — matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps — to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. Year after year, audiences worldwide keep coming back for more of this pulse-pounding electrifying show. As the Boston Globe says, “If you haven’t seen STOMP, GO! If you have seen it, take someone and share the pleasure!” STOMP. See what all the noise is about.
“STOMP is as crisp and exuberant as if it had opened yesterday.” — The New York Times
“STOMP has a beat that just won’t quit!” — San Francisco Chronicle
“Electrifying! Triumphs in the infinite variety of the human experience.” — Los Angeles Times
