Running around banging on furniture and making annoying loud noises with household objects is typically considered among the highest-raking annoying tendencies of young children. However, when the professionals from STOMP bang, squash, tweak and crumple, their sounds deliver a melodic percussion sensation that tantalizes audiences across the globe. The eight-member group of smackers uses everything but conventional instruments—matchboxes, newspapers, brooms, garbage cans, lighters, barrels—to fill the stage with rhythms that satisfy the ears and the eyes alike. So next time, rather than punishing the brat you hear smacking your trashcan with a broom handle, try encouraging them toward a performance career. It’s more productive. Okay, mom?
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 9. Continues through Oct. 14, 2012
