Dance News: 'Stomp' Performers Hang Up Their Garbage Can Lids

Bring this thing to Miami Beach and I’m sure it could go for years more:

You’ll soon hear a little less tapping, banging and clattering in New York City. After almost 29 years, the percussive show Stomp will play its final performance at the Orpheum Theater this Sunday.

The wordless production, which opened off-Broadway in 1994, is known for its driving percussion and creative use of objects like metal garbage cans, shopping carts and brooms—in other words, anything but an instrument.

The closing came “due to declining ticket sales,” a spokesperson for Stomp tells Abbey White and Caitlin Huston of the Hollywood Reporter. The show’s North American and European tours will continue.
