VIDEO: STOMP Supports Environmental Causes

"Whenever we can, we support any outreach programs," STOMP Co-Creator Luke Cresswell shares on STOMP's long and steady involvement in environmental causes geared toward recycling, re-using, and clean-up drives all over the world.

Going beyond the STOMP brand into socio-civic endeavors is the natural next step to take given the show's nature--which is turning a sow's ear into a silk purse--but Cresswell and the entire STOMP production are careful about which projects they involve themselves, ensuring that the motives for such projects are not politically-driven.

STOMP showcases performers who use ordinary objects as musical instruments, i.e. brooms, dust bins, boxes of matches, plumbing fixtures, and supermarket trolleys, among others, while they show off their dance moves and flair for comedy.

Performed in more than 50 countries and before more than 24 million people, the show has won the Olivier Award for Best Choreography, an Obie Award, Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and a special citation from Best Plays. Its HBO presentation "Stomp Out Loud" received an Academy Award nomination, four Emmy Award nominations, and one Emmy Award. Some of its noteworthy TV appearances include The London 2012 Olympic Games' closing ceremony and the Academy Awards.

Following its Philippine premiere in 2011, London's West End and Off-Broadway's percussion sensation, STOMP, will return to the Cultural Center of the Philippines' (CCP) main theater for a limited eight-performance engagement from Tuesday, June 17, to Sunday, June 22.

Rocky Christopher Fajardo For the last five years, Rocky has been performing as lead male vocalist for different showbands in Southeast Asian countries, which led him to grace several magazine spreads in Malaysia in 2012; and paved the way for guest appearances on Cambodian TV in 2013, and a duet with Tony winner Lea Salonga in her major concert in Manila in 2009.

This year, Rocky has traded away the microphone and dancing shoes for the writing pen and whiteboard marker: his love for music and musical theater steered his professional writing debut as a correspondent for covering the international touring production of WICKED in Manila in January. At the same time, his Master’s Degree in English has prompted a second career as full-time faculty and as Mass Communications Program Head at FEATI University in Manila.
