At the culmination of their current process, creating new piece 'Seedling', 'theMiddletonCorpus' are offering an opportunity to join Anthony Middleton (Artistic Director) & company members in the studio at 'Dance Studio Leeds', for a workshop exploring the seamless combination of acrobatics and dance.
Anthony's unique language and aesthetic, with 'theMiddletonCorpus', explores the fluid integration of acrobatic skills and dance, creating what he describes as 'sculptural dance'.
"Rather than the focus simply being upon the physical prowess and skill of acrobatics, I wanted to explore a way to uncover the inherent ability for physical language, bodies working together, trusting each other; and utilise that language to 'speak' about concepts. It's not what we are necessarily doing, but 'how' we are doing it." - Anthony Middleton (Artistic Director)
This workshop will be an opportunity for those interested in partner-work, contact and acrobatics, to experience Anthony's individual approach to exploring and creating materials, as well as learning repertoire from their new work.
