The act was part of a yearly outdoor event taking place across squares, open spaces, waterfronts and parks around Canary Wharf until Sunday, as part of the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival.

A fiest of bite-sized outdoor dance acts from a cheeky interpretation of the perils of drinking and dancing to close encounters with classical ballet are being performed.

Performers include members of the English National Ballet and dancers from France.
