Stomp co-creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas conceived the work that uses vacuum cleaners, musical saws, bottles, hair driers, whirly toys, traffic cones and other found items to create a unique orchestra. Performances will continue through Sept. 26 in Miami.
The work first premiered in the U.K. in 2006 and has been re-worked for the American tour, which incorporates a 25-member company comprising Stomp performers, classical musicians, physical comedians and aerial artists.
Each stop on the tour promises a 30-member local choir, who will contribute to the finale of Pandemonium. Luke Cresswell is the conductor.
Tour dates for Pandemonium follow:
Raleigh, NC (Sept. 28-Oct. 3 at the Memorial Auditorium)
Washington, DC (Oct. 5-10 at the National Theatre)
Chicaco, IL (Oct. 12-17 at the Bank of America Theatre)
Boston, MA (Oct. 21-24 at the Wang Center) Additional dates for Los Angeles and San Francisco are expected.
Following its 2006 premiere in Brighton, Pandemonium toured to the Sydney Opera House in 2007, followed by a run at London's Royal Festival Hall in 2008 and an engagement at the Carre Theatre in Amsterdam in March 2009.
