'My work is often a poetic treatment of folkloric tales, tragic romances and references to mixed heritage anxieties that are communicated through the mediums of dance, theatre and gestural tableaux.
I aim to make work that meditates on the beauty, darkness and fragility of human existence.'
Anthony is a contemporary dance artist based in the North of England working across the UK and Europe. He currently works as a dance theatre choreographer, a performer and also as a dance tutor.
Born in Palermo in 1986 to British/Sicilian parents and later brought up in the North of England, his work as an artist continuously blends the complexities of identity, heritage and family that have formed between both cultures. As well as being firmly routed in the North East of England, Anthony’s has expanded to audiences and cultural organisations across Europe throughout Italy, the UK, Ukraine, Sweden, Czech Republic, Greece, Iceland, Spain and France.
Anthony trained at Newcastle College, with further studies at The Royal Ballet School. He has previously worked for notable artists and companies such as Neville Campbell, Anontello Tudisco and UBISOFT, amongst others. Teaching also plays an intrinsic part to Anthony's work as a dance artist. He is a regular guest tutor for both the Northern School of contemporary Dance and Dance City Newcastle and has also taught for Zelyonka Fest in Ukraine, YDance (Scotland’s National organisation for Youth Dance), Dance Base, ArtGarage Pozzuoli, Newcastle College, Corporea Mente, Interno5Start in Naples, The Royal Ballet School and The Royal Opera House.
