TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: International Percussion Sensation “STOMP” to Play at S.F.’s A.C.T. Geary Theater

Nov 01, 2019
“STOMP,” the international percussion sensation, will play American Conservatory Theater’s (A.C.T.) Geary Theater (415 Geary St.) in San Francisco from November 5-10, 2019 for eight performances only. From its beginnings as a street performance in the UK “STOMP” has grown into an international sensation over the past 20 years, having performance in more than 50 countries and in front of more than 24 million people.

Created by Luke Cresswell as 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. Throughout its life, the show has continued to change by creating new material. It is safe to say that audiences will never again look at supermarket carts or plumbing fixtures the same way… or paint cans, or kitchen sinks, etc.

“STOMP,” An overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards, and sell-out engagements, is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography, a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and a Special Citation from Best Plays.

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.
