Interview: Donisha Brown on the Enduring Show Legacy of ‘Stomp’

28 April 2010 5:10 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – The dance and percussion show, “Stomp,” part of popular culture for close to 20 years, performs again in Chicago at the Bank of America Theater from April 28th through May 2nd. Donisha Brown, a “co-rehearsal Director” and performance artist in the show for over 11 years, is a crucial part of Stomp’s endurance.

Stomp’s history begins in Britain in 1981, with the creators Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell. These street band performers – the act was called Pookiesnackenburger – eventually evolved into the show, which was written and choreographed by Luke as a part of the band’s stage act. The original Stomp debuted at the Edinburgh Festival and London in 1991.

Since that time Stomp has morphed into an international sensation, with touring companies and a Las Vegas revue. Its unique act of using everyday objects for percussion, along with dance movement and physical comedy, has entertained and endured through countless performances and variations. »
