STOMP, the International Percussion Sensation, Makes Its Durham Premiere at DPAC March 27-29, 2015

Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 04, 2014

STOMP, the international percussion sensation, makes its Durham premiere at DPAC March 27-29, 2015. From its beginnings as a street performance in the UK, STOMP has grown into an international sensation over the past 20 years, having performed in more than 50 countries and in front of more than 24 million people.

Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP continues its phenomenal run with four global productions: the ongoing sell-out production at New York’s Orpheum Theatre, a permanent London company, and North American and European tours.

Tickets will go on sale to the public Saturday, September 13 at 10 a.m. Groups of 10 or more may begin purchasing tickets on August 7, and may do so by e-mailing groups(at)dpacnc(dot)com or calling 919.281.0587. SunTrust Broadway Season Seat Members will be able to purchase tickets in advance starting August 6.

The performers make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound, says co-founder/director Luke Cresswell. A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression: both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band of body percussionists. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

Synchronized stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra, eight Zippo lighters flip open and closed to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion. STOMP uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – dustbins, tea chests, radiator hoses, boots, hub caps – to fill the stage with a compelling and unique act that is often imitated but never duplicated. It is safe to say you will never again look at supermarket carts or plumbing fixtures the same way or paint cans, or kitchen sinks or

The performance schedule for STOMP at DPAC runs as follows:
