Stomp, the high-energy show that has given old brooms and dustbins a new lease on life, is coming to the Théatre National de Nice this December.
Celebrating 20 years, the most unconventional of musical shows, Stomp, arrives in Nice next month for a series of seven performances, between the 11th and 16th of December.
Started in Brighton in 1991 by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, the show has certainly come a long way since their original preview at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre. Their latest triumph has surely to be that memorable performance at the closing ceremony of the recent Olympic Games in London.
With five troupes of eight performing worldwide, Stomp has been keeping audiences thrilled with their unique and compelling rhythmic percussive symphony. Using a vast array of ‘instruments‘ (think dustbin lids, Zippo lighters, brooms, water bottles, even bananas!), and despite a very tightly choreographed show, each member of Stomp has the room to express their own personality. And having no words or melody in the traditional sense, Stomp as a show is guaranteed to appeal to all musical tastes.
You can catch the performances at the Salle Pierre Brasseur in the Théâtre National de Nice on the following dates:-
– Tuesday 11th December at 8:30pm
– Wednesday 12th December at 8:30pm
– Thursday 13th December at 7:30pm
– Friday 14th December at 8:30pm
– Saturday 15th December at 4pm and 8:30pm
– Sunday 15th December at 3pm.
Tickets range in price from €33 to €48 and are on sale from Fnac and also from their online ticket site.
