Rather, the musical performance Stomp came to the school's esteemed Ferguson Center for the Arts, and I snagged tickets with some friends for $10 each! High in the balcony, but the performance was still absolutely fantastic!
I have been anticipating this performance since the center's show schedule was published back at the end of the summer. Stomp has been on my "to see" list for almost ten years now, so finally getting that chance was, simply put, a dream come true.
It was so fun to watch them make music off of literally anything. The brooms, of course, or simply their feet and hands, and trash can lids and buckets and flexible tubes and whatever else suited their fancy.
What I also thought while watching the performance was that the troupe is almost the antithesis of the Blue Man Group. BMG takes tubes and paints and stays almost lifeless while they play futuristic, wild-looking instruments, whereas Stomp shows they are there to have fun using whatever junk they found around the street. (Either way, awesome!)
The performers are very ingenuitive and know how to put on a show. There was never a dull moment and their cleverness shone each moment.
