‘Black dog is what Winston Churchill used to call his depression… I have a beautiful black dog and I call her creshendorious.’
My Beautiful Black Dog by Brigitte Aphrodite is a new piece of gig-theatre for people interested in music, comedy, poetry, theatre – and the difficult and beauteous complexity of our mental health. A poetry rock musical tackling a serious subject in a joyous celebration of music and words.

‘Two years ago, I found a videotape in my loft. On it: one and a half films, one quiz show and two sitcoms. Somehow it became the story of my life.’
Ross Sutherland attempts a daring experiment in synchronicity. Using nothing but found-footage from one of his granddad’s old videotapes, Ross attempts to draw out his entire life story. A true story of one man’s journey into synchronicity and madness.
