Brigitte Aphrodite is a punk poet, musician, writer, theatre-maker and feminist showgirl. During her formative years Brigitte toured extensively as a musician, alongside artists such as Kate Nash and Josie Long. Most recently, she is best known for her critically acclaimed show My Beautiful Black Dog; a part gig, part theatre, punk musical exploring depression. It sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and Southbank Centre, toured nationally and featured in the Guardian, Elle and on the BBC 10 O’clock News. Through the Wellcome Trust a workshop based around the show was developed and carried out in schools across the country. Brigitte’s expressive, multidisciplinary work has won her a loyal following, including the likes of Arthur Brown and Lauren Laverne.
Brigitte is a proud mentor for the youth charity, Arts Emergency. She has facilitated workshops for Ideastap, the National Youth Theatre, the Eggtooth Project and has invented the sport Frunning (a combination of running and dancing!)
