Created in Brighton, UK, in 1991, Stomp was the result of a ten-year collaboration between its creators, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas. The popularity of Stomp grew from strength to strength resulting in the cast performing live at the 1996 Academy Awards to an estimated audience of almost 1 billion worldwide. The largest assembly of Stomp performers ever (40 performers from 12 different countries) was brought together for a specially choreographed appearance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
There are up to four Stomp productions around the globe at any given time. Stomp has been touring the globe for 26 years, playing over 20 thousand performances in 55 countries on six continents. In its lifetime so far, Stomp has consumed over 60 000 boxes of matches, 40 000 brooms, 30 000 bins, 20,000 drumsticks and 35 000 litres of black paint applied with 780 paint rollers. Celebrities who have experienced the show include Jodie Foster, Howard Stern, Denzel Washington, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Bruce Willis.
The show toured this country in 2010 to critical acclaim and sold out performances. Almost a decade later, Stomp is back in South Africa to wow and amaze a new generation of theatre-goers.
