Dance team Bad Taste Cru created a piece called Council Of The Ordinary based on Emma's Concilium Plebis paintings and performed it for her on the opening night of her show at The Customs House in 2010. Their astonishing performance appears in full on Emma's DVD and has since appeared at London's Breakin' Convention, the San Francisco Hip Hop Festival, Trafalgar Square Arts Festival and many more.

The show was so successful Bad Taste Cru were commissioned by Without Walls to develop a sequel: Tribal Assembly (Comitia Tributa) featuring the same archetypal British street characters originally inspired by Emma Tooth's paintings.

Bad Taste Cru returned with Emma to The Customs House in 2014 to launch BREAKING ART, completing the circle.
