Tony Adigun, IDENTITY director and founder of Avant Garde Dance Company:

“The thing I find most powerful about the creativity coming out of east London is that it is wildly eclectic, meaning you can’t pigeon hole it and yet there is a shared mentality, a powerful energy of coming together to challenge the system. As an east London artist, my creative process is about collaboration across genres and working outside of traditional artistic conventions. Whether it’s dance, fashion, music or art, no one form is more important than another, they all influence each other to become part of a cultural movement that reaches far beyond east London.”
