Pandemonium: The Lost and Found Orchestra, from Stomp co-creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, launches a North American tour on September 16 in Miami.
The show transforms everyday objects into a plethora of invented instruments. It is performed by the LFO (Lost and Found Orchestra), and recreates every section of a symphony orchestra, using musical saws, bottles, whirly toys, and traffic cones.
Pandemonium originally premiered in May 2006 at the United Kingdom's Brighton Festival. It has since broken box office records at Sydney Opera House, and played extended runs at London's Royal Festival Hall and Amsterdam's Carre Theatre. The current tour has been reworked for 2010 with an array of homemade instruments, a 25-member mix of veteran STOMP performers, classical musicians, physical comedians, and aerialists.
Cresswell serves as onstage conductor of the 50+ member company and will also perform in the show. In each city a 30 member local choir will contribute vocals.
