Established by West-Yorkshire born artist, Anthony Middleton, ‘theMiddletonCorpus’ is his company and collective body of work, currently based in Leeds (UK).
Anthony is passionate about creating high quality multidisciplinary performance, combining contemporary dance and acrobatics. His work is created for a variety of performance spaces, in theatres and public spaces, both indoor and outdoors. Touring nationally and internationally, Anthony hopes that his work will both excite, inform and inspire audiences of all ages in the UK and beyond.
In addition to creating work with his company, Anthony is also interested in creating commissioned work for professional dance and theatre companies, as well as offering creative opportunities for communities and young people to engage with his unique choreographic style.
We are thrilled to announce that 'theMiddletonCorpus' have been successful in our most recent application for funds, via Arts Council England, in support of our new outdoor creation 'Seedling'. This new work will be a 20minute outdoor touring performance, suitable for festivals and events both regionally, nationally and internationally.

So as 'theMiddletonCorpus' creep over our 50% way through our touring for Summer 2016, we stop for a brief moment and take a breath. We've been so utterly thrilled with the responses to 'Without End' as we have been up and down the country, as well as over the sea...

"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."
