Talk:Stomp (theatrical show)
|WikiProject Percussion||(Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)|
Can someone add a rundown on the Stomp shows, in cities and traveling companies, around the world? I know it started in London, and there's a long-running off-Broadway version in the East Village, NYC. But there are others, yes? Digit LeBoid 16:55, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Stomp Out Loud
HBO also produced the DVD Stomp Out Loud, which features the group members producing percussion out of normal household items, even in a junk yard.they all so fucked there mums up the ass they popped there cheery's
The group was never in a junkyard. The only time junk items were on screen, they were on the rooftop of a building, suspended hanging from a sign saying "STOMP", that was covered in junkyard stuff that became their instruments, but it wasn't in a junkyard.--WPaulB (talk) 18:44, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Family Guy parody
"Stomp of Clomp or some other crap." Should the Family Guy reference be mentioned in the article? --188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:56, 21 August 2010 (UTC) Surely not, simply for referencing them. However, Stomp was heavily parodied in an extended sequence in a season 9 episode. The long scene features a parody of a Stomp show, with audience members driven so insane by the repetitive percussion that they slowly all either fled or killed themselves in theatre, in time to the music, with the troupe unawares until the end, when the finally notice the seats covered in blood and corpse. That probably is a notable parody. I don't know if that's the same episode as the "Stomp or Clomp or some other crap" reference; I saw the episode when it first aired.
At any rate, this "article" (really a promotional piece) is entirely devoid of critical information. Not all reviewers have received the Stomp shows warmly. — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō)ˀ Contribs. 21:15, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Troupe, company/brand, and show
"Stomp" needs to be distinguished throughout the article, as to whether it is referring to Stomp as a production/show or series of productions/show, Stomp an an organisation/franchise/trademark, or particular Stomp performing troupes. As written now, the article is very confusing on this point, and uses these concepts as if they were interchangeable. — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō)ˀ Contribs. 21:04, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
The article name of "Stomp (dance troupe)" doesn't seem to adequately describe this topic. Firstly they don't dance and it's not a troupe because there are multiple versions of it running across the world. It can't really be called a "West End" or "Broadway show" because it's performed in many other locations and it did not originate in either location anyway. I don't think "musical" is right as there are no songs (which is what I think most people would imagine a "musical" would include). Finally "physical theatre" doesn't quite work because the show doesn't really tell a dramatic story as such. I've really been scratching my head about this one. I'm drawn towards "Stomp (theatrical show)". That doesn't tie it to "theatre" (because Stomp seems to be performed in a variety of venues) neither does it link to a particular location.
I'm not one to normally move a page, so I was going to request a move. However I've just read the Wikipedia:Requested moves policy and it does suggest to be bold if the move is likely to be uncontroversial. I don't think this will be. By far the largest problem with this article is the lack of references which is more problematic than the article name. So... I'm going to be bold and move this page to "Stomp (theatrical show)".

- What do you call a carefully choreographied movement to a rhythm if not dance? Stomp fulfills any requirements for dance easily.
