BEDLAM - My Beautiful Black Dog
Gig meets theatre meets depression meets a tidal wave of glitter!
My Beautiful Black Dog is a new piece of electrifying gig-theatre from Bridgette Aphrodite for people interested in music, comedy, poetry, theatre, and the difficult and beauteous complexity of our mental health.
This show challenges the urgent stigma around depression and encourages the audience to take ownership of their own black dogs whilst channeling, wild dance moves, swagger-boss costumes and banging tunes!

To Do List
Her music is funny and honest and wild and raw and there really is nothing like it...she's like a rock n roll glitterball that crawled out of the sea.
A raw but uplifting mixture of music and performance about embracing life with depression
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so emotionally honest on stage before
