Palma.—From September 19 to 23, the group will literraly be stomping all over the Auditorium in Palma and tickets are now on sale.
Stomp has captured the attention of over 15 million people over the past 20 years across the globe with their art of using the body and ordinary objects to create a physical theatre performance.

Stomp was created in Brighton in the summer of 1991. It was the result of a 10 year collaboration between its creators, Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell.

That same year, Cresswell and McNicholas produced, financed and directed the original Stomp show, previewing at London's Bloomsbury Theatre and premiering at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh, where it became the Guardian's “Critic's Choice” and won the Daily Express's “Best of the Fringe” award. Originally a seven-piece (with Luke Cresswell, Theseus Gerard, Fraser Morrison, Carl Smith, Nick Dwyer, David Olrod and Sarah Eddy), Stomp grew to be an eight person outfit with the addition of Fiona Wilkes in the fall of ‘91.

Between 1991 and 1994, the original cast of Stomp played to capacity audiences around the world. The touring culminated in a season at Sadler's Wells Theatre in London in January 1994, where Stomp received an Olivier nomination for the “Best Entertainment Award” and won “Best Choreography Award in a West End show”.

In the summer of 1995, two more American productions were created for the sole purpose of US touring which continues to this day.
US casts have also debuted Stomp in Chile, Brazil and Korea. Meanwhile, a fifth Stomp company, also touring from the UK, was formed in 1997 and has consistently toured the world ever since.

In 2006, Stomp's New York production passed its 5000th performance mark. In the same year, Cresswell and McNicholas directed a public service announcement for television called “Stomp Out Litter”, which featured the cast “sweeping up” at iconic locations in the five boroughs. They also began filming an IMAX 3D movie about South Africa's Sardine run, released in early 2008.

In addition, they were commissioned to create and produce Pandemonium: the Lost and Found Orchestra, which takes the ideas behind Stomp to a symphonic level, in celebration of 40 years of the Brighton Festival.

The LFO subsequently performed at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Sydney Festival early in 2007 and at the Royal Festival Hall in London. The show was reworked and renamed for a US tour in 2010: Pandemonium: the Lost and Found Orchestra.

So, this is one show not to be missed and tickets are on sale at the Auditorium box office and on Ticketmaster.
