Highlighting the diversity of Londoners with interactions of the people and with the sculpture. Using the sculpture as a playground, it highlighted the possibilities of enjoying the open spaces London has to offer with performers climbing up and walking across this 2.50 meter sculpture.

Breed, choreographed by Nasae Evanson and with Avant Garde, this piece was fast flowing and was a mixture of contemporary and street choreography. It highlighted the diversity of the company, which included high risk lifts, jumps and sequences which meant the dancers needed to be on top of their game to execute.
