Possible STOMP OUT LITTER: From NYC to MNL
Manila, Philippines--One of the most memorable campaigns that STOMP ever got involved in was STOMP OUT LITTER, which began in San Francisco and eventually moved to New York, and having further varied incarnations in countries all over the world such as Germany and Scotland, to name a few.
With STOMP, it may seem like nothing is impossible.
"Yes, I think that would be lovely..." says STOMP Co-Creator Luke Cresswell when asked about the possibility of taking STOMP OUT LITTER to Manila any time soon.

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.
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.
