Stomp is an extremely difficult concept to define; no one word does it justice. It's not a play. There's no story and no script, and save for the occasional holler or grunt, there's no lines. It's not a dance number. It's true, the performers move about the stage, graceful, controlled and with beautiful precision, but it's more than that. It's not a concert, as the drumming, banging, scrapping, slipping and stomping are only a part of the whole, and certainly not complete on their own.
