VIDEO: The Ultimate Source of STOMP Inspiration
London--"The nice thing about STOMP is that there are so many different inspirations, and everyone brings all those different inspirations into the show," shares Fraser Morrison, STOMP rehearsal director.
STOMP has grown wildly, successfully from a simple street performance in Brighton, and founded its then very young roots on pure inspiration from people from all walks of life. 20 years later, the show has finally conquered the world it drew its original inspirations from.

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.
