There are no words in STOMP which means it’s one of those rare shows in Hong Kong that appeals to the Chinese and expat populations in equal measure. It essentially consists of a group of highly energetic individuals who jump around banging a variety of every day objects to an infectious rhythm. It’s as if some visionary once saw their children making a racket at home and decided adults would like it. You can check out a video here.
It’s great if you’re one of those unfortunate people who always fall asleep at the theatre – no one will hear you snoring – and it really doesn’t matter if you love Kylie Minogue whereas your girlfriend’s a Slipknot junkie: STOMP'S primordial rhythms appeal to everyone, of all ages. We don't understand how they do it.
They’ll be playing in the Lyric Theatre from October 25 – November 6, and we expect the shows to sell out so if you’re interested you’d better hurry.
Stomp what you’re doing.
