MANILA -- After its successful staging in 2011 in the Philippines, the international theatrical sensation "Stomp" is coming back to Manila.

The kinetically-charged repertoire will be performing for eight runs at the Cultural Center of the Philippines' (CCP) Main Theater from June 17-22, 2014.

"Stomp," whose trademark industrial percussion include brooms, garbage can lids, paint canisters, newspapers to portable kitchen sinks, promises to return with an even bigger bang, bringing along an array of numbers electrified by fresh rhythms and beats.

The show will include two new routines introduced in 2013 called "Frogs" and "Trolleys", both of which explore titillating and bizarre rhythms created from a variety of plumbing fixtures and a fully-laden supermarket trolley, turning them into sophisticated musical instruments, respectively.

"Stomp," presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Concertus Manila, is also currently playing in the UK, US, throughout Europe and South America.

"We are really excited about coming back to Manila," said Stomp's Co-Creator and Director Steve McNicholas. "If you've never seen Stomp, you should come and see what all the noise is about, and if you have, come again and see what’s new."
