Welcome to ‘theMiddletonCorpus’

‘theMiddletonCorpus’ is the collective body of work created by West Yorkshire-born artist Anthony Middleton.

Anthony is passionate about creating high quality multidisciplinary performance, combining contemporary dance and acrobatics, that is accessible for a wide audience demographic. Creating versatile work that is performed in public spaces, indoor and outdoors, Anthony wants to bring his own choreographic work to audiences around the UK and internationally.


"As a creator, I draw from my experiences as both an acrobat and as a dancer, challenging how these two disciplines can be integrated and redefined in my own personal aesthetic. When I'm constructing my work, I like to work with the body as a sculptor would work with clay, manipulating ways to construct architectural forms and acrobatic structures that can communicate concepts, ideas and imagery, that can resonate with an audience." - Anthony Middleton
