STOMP Live (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $3.99 to rent and $5.99 to buy)

Eight performers take the audience on a journey through sound and music, where rhythm is the only language. Combining physical comedy and athlesticism, it’s ahighly charged performance from an idiosyncratic group who could only come from the world of STOMP.

If you’re not familiar with this amazing show, in which the performers make music using ordinary items like brooms, buckets, even straws and plastic bags, here’s a sample. It starts with just one man apparently sweeping up before the show begins, but before you know it he’s been joined by other members of the troupe to perform a complex, synchronized dance/percussion routine, and the show is in full swing!
