STOMP is explosive, inventive, provocative, witty, and utterly unique — an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages (“A phenomenal show! Bashing, crashing, smashing, swishing, banging and kicking – a joyous invention!” — Chicago Tribune). The international percussion sensation has garnered armfuls of awards and rave reviews and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments — matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps — to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. Year after year, audiences worldwide keep coming back for more of this pulse-pounding electrifying show. As The Boston Globe says, “If you haven’t seen STOMP, GO! If you have seen it, take someone and share the pleasure!” STOMP. See what all the noise is about.

Since our founding in 1975, the UMass Fine Arts Center has been a central force in the cultural, social and academic life of the university, the Five Colleges, and the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. The Fine Arts Center’s combination of educational, visual, and performing arts programs not only makes us distinct, but also secures a vital and necessary position for us to meet the diverse needs of scholars, faculty, students, alumni and the broader community. We offer a variety of stellar arts and education programs that create a unique delivery service for the arts with many points of entry. We provide a variety and depth of experiences that touch the lives of students from the University of Massachusetts and the Five Colleges, as well as the campus and regional communities. Each program engages its audience with a curatorial vision appealing to individuals and groups both on and off campus.

In a consultative and deeply collaborative process with respected advisors from local Tribal Nations, the UMass Native Advisory Council has co-developed a campus Land Acknowledgement. This Acknowledgement affirms our campus connection and relationship to the land the campus is built upon and our continued connection to the Nations who were the original inhabitants and caretakers of this land.
