Failing to see "Stomp" will cause a hazard to your booty. It's the show that's been around the globe and has finally returned to London. In this combination of music, percussion and dance, performers flip over trash cans and other ordinary objects to generate a symphony of urban noises. The sounds are not a cacophony of unlike noises, but rather a rhythmic collection of beats that don't slow down or let the listener pay attention to anything else. "Stomp" hooks itself into the audience with a sense of magic by using the most unmagical of sources to make music.
