Involving both innovative percussion and dancing, Provo will finally be able to experience the international phenomenon known as Stomp.

For almost two decades, the group has thrilled and astounded its audiences with intensely creative, choreographed percussion utilizing everything from playing cards, to brooms, to that favorite urban childhood instrument, the trash can. It may sound like something anyone can do, but the group’s audiences are consistently blown away by the obvious skill these performers possess.

The brainchild of Steve McNicholas and Luke Creswell from Brighton, U.K., Stomp has sold out shows all over the world since its genesis, and has appeared in soap operas, commercials, IMAX, shorts and has also recorded music for movie soundtracks. But one thing Stomp fans report time and again is that watching their recorded performances is one thing, and seeing them perform live is very different, and infinitely better.

If you don’t believe me, but especially if you do, you can see the performance for yourself at the Covey Center for the Arts located at 425 West Center Street in Provo beginning Jan. 11 through Jan. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Parking will be limited, so make sure to get there early.

As of now, most tickets are sold out — but there will be an online ticket sale on the Jan. 9 that you’ll want to jump on. For more information, you can visit www.coveycenter.org, or Stomp’s official website at www.stomponline.com.
