DENVER (CBS4)– They use everything you see in everyday life, brooms, newspapers, even their own feet, but not one instrument. The Stomp crew creates electrifying sounds and rhythms that keep the audience moving. No show is the same.
“Spock” as he is called by his fellow stompers, believes in the creativity of the show. He thrives on it which explains why every performance is always different and keeps audiences coming back.READ MORE: Colorado Snow Totals: Boulder County Gets More Than A Foot
“We get on stage, there is a lot of improv, we don’t know what this side’s going to do, what this guy’s going to do and that keeps it fresh for the audience and that must be why it’s still around,” said Spock.
He said it’s about 75 percent rehearsed and 25 percent “in the moment” which is why chemistry, timing, spacing and energy are so important.
The cast uses everything from brooms, match boxes, wooden poles, garbage cans, garbage can lids, lighters, even hub cabs to wrap audiences in the rhythm.READ MORE: More Jobs Become Available As Colorado Reopens, Prepares For Post Pandemic
The show is also an integral part of “Stomp Out Hunger” which has the Denver Center for Performing Arts teamed up with the Denver Rescue Mission. There are barrels where theater-goers can drop off non-perishable food items before they head into the show.
Stomp runs through Sunday, March 15 at the Buell Theatre. Tickets start at $25.
