About the work:

'Seedling' is visually striking, entrancing family-friendly Acrobatic-dance performance, exploring the concept of creation and life.

This is the latest creation for theMiddletonCorpus, from choreographer Anthony Middleton, an uplifting and enthralling performance that will carry audiences, young and adult, into the magic of the creation of new life.


A gardener wheels his cart, in search of the ideal place to lay his seeds. The ideal location found, he prepares the ground to give life to the 'Seedling'.

2 performers transform to become the growing 'Seedling', from the beginning of all things, a Seed in the ground, breaking through the soil, digging strong roots and growing into full adulthood; this piece celebrates the cyclical nature of creation and life.
