Anna Goodman launched Abstrakt Publicity in 1999 promoting music and performing arts. For nearly 20 years, the company has worked with a multitude of clients and projects, creating maximum awareness for dance, theatre, live art, cabaret, spoken word and circus. Abstrakt Publicity publicises national tours, regional events, one-off performances and arts festivals via print and online media as well as TV and radio. Prior to 1999, Anna worked in London and New York, developing PR contacts and skills. Her first PR job in London was publicising fund-raising events for Laverna House, a charity providing sheltered housing for men, women and children living with AIDS. At this time she was also promoting club events, leading to work within music, nightlife and fashion. This ultimately proved indispensable in developing a specialised publicity company.

In 2000 Abstrakt was approached by Hip Hop dance/theatre artist Jonzi D to promote Aeroplane Man, the story of a young black man from East London who travels the world seeking his ideal destination. The idea was to reach beyond regular theatre and dance critics, attracting a target audience with credible coverage alongside generic press. Aeroplane Man toured internationally and sold out at the South Bank Centre, setting a precedent for an explorative way of working. Since then, the performance world has opened up considerably as Abstrakt continues to tap into audiences and media contacts across the board.

Abstrakt still work with Jonzi D via the annual Hip Hop dance festival at Sadler’s Wells, Breakin' Convention which in 2019 will present its 16th festival. Other current and recent projects include campaigns for Compass Live Art Festival in Leeds, Scottee’s Fat Blokes at the South Bank Centre, Andrew Graves via Renaissance One, Greg Wohead at Soho Theatre and The Yard Theatre, Marisa Carnesky at Soho Theatre, Stopgap Dance Company on tour, ongoing projects for Brighton’s Marlborough Theatre, Andrew Logan's Alternative Miss World at Shakespeare’s Globe plus live artists and theatre makers such as Jo Bannon, Ellie Harrison and Nathan Evans.
