Body Percussion

Lots of stomping good fun

Our junior reporters stomped and drummed. Then they spoke to the pros - the awesome crew of the Stomp performance group.

Banging out a tune

Thump! Bang! Clank! Feel free to add your own onomatopoeia here. What better way to describe Stomp than with sounds commonly heard at the show?

Bash, drum, rock'n'roll

Faster, Fresher, Funnier' is the tagline for the revitalised version of the British percussion show Stomp. But does the 90-minute performance live up to this promise after being around for two decades?

The Stompers are back after six years - and you can win tickets to catch the musical mayhem

The Stompers are back in town and the promoter has provided readers with two packs of complimentary A-reserve tickets, worth HK$750 each to savour the head-bobbing, toe-tapping experience.

The show opens on October 25 and runs through November 6 for 16 shows at the Lyric Theatre at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

Every act a smash hit

It's loud and noisy and if you lived next to them you would be complaining to the police. However, on the Lyric Theatre's stage, it's applause and acclaim. The eight-men Stomp band opened on Tuesday night with a sold-out crowd including singer Lui Fong, model Kathy Chow Man-kei and TV personality Dodo Cheng Yu-ling.

Can't Stomp the music

'IT GETS WORSE,' Luke Cresswell says. 'Some days are worse than others. But it's under control at the moment.'

See what the noise is all about

Infectious rhythms and a barrage of incredible sound effects make for a sensational theatre experience

THE TOE-TAPPING, finger-snapping, foot-stomping musical that wowed Hong Kong audiences seven years ago is coming back - with a bang.

Musical could be just what the doctor ordered

GOING TO SEE Stomp may prove to be more than just a fun night at the theatre; it may be good for your health. With its focus on percussion and its interactive features - at certain points, audience members are free to join in the clapping, stomping and beating - the musical may serve as a healthy stress release for spectators.

It takes two to tango - public also to blame

There is a Chinese idiom that says 'You can't clap with only one hand'.

All fingers are now pointing at the magazine which sparked the nude-photo furore, but we should not forget the other hand - those who bought the magazine just to 'learn more about the event'. (Or was it 'to find out who she is'?)

Concert-goers left in the dark

I have for many years attended classical music concerts at the Cultural Centre.

Last season the management began the exceedingly irritating habit of dimming the house lights between pieces to the point where the auditorium is virtually in total darkness. Previously I had used these few minutes to read the programme notes for the next piece. This is now impossible.

Stompin' with a dustbin

Dustbins, brooms, matchboxes and oil barrels are among the everyday objects used to create the rhythmic extravaganza that is Stomp. Having taken the world by storm, the group is now wowing audiences in Hong Kong with a two-week stint at the Academy of Performing Arts.

Poor show

Poor Marie Osmond, facing an audience slow hand-clapping on the opening night of The Sound of Music.
