Yesterday I went to see STOMP the musical extravaganza that finds a way to make noise on pretty much anything. What an amazing show. There was no intermission, but they kept us entertained and engaged the entire time. With trash cans, brooms, inner tubes, lighters, PVC tubes and even matches they simply made a whole lot of noise! Each one of the dancers also had a unique personality they played up throughout the show.
Coming home, I felt my hand wandering and testing the sound of anything that came under my reach. Now, for the social experiment:
Let’s say, you walk into a store and get a rhythm going by banging on cans, carts and stomping your feet. Would people get pulled into the music and start bobbing their heads in unison? Or, would they start glaring at your for disrupting the mundane silence they need so hard to be able to concentrate on their selections? And, would the reactions differ by countries or even city versus country side?
I think it could be possible to loosen them up.
