Abstrakt Publicity

Promotion and publicity for theatre, dance, circus and live art


"Anna joined me around the first time I began to convince people that Hip Hop could be theatre. Since then her passion and commitment to getting the job done has contributed to the success of the work that I have made as a solo artist and with Breakin' Convention"
Jonzi D - Hip Hop theatre maker and Breakin' Convention Artistic Director, Sadler’s Wells

"Anna Goodman and Abstrakt Publicity have been working with me and Carnesky Productions for over a decade to bring my shows to wider attention. Gaining coverage in multiple broadsheets including the Guardian and The Times, national and local papers and magazines, radio including BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Sussex, various social media, podcasts and TV coverage, Anna has always found the right context to showcase my work, get it reviewed in places that matter and help us achieve great audiences. She knows the sector and scene so well with connections spanning the performance, theatre, art, clubs and fashion worlds, traversing the mainstream and the underground with a seamless finesse. Her copy is always beautifully written with attention to detail and she is always there at the heart of the project, listening, advising, taking part and being totally dedicated and involved. She is also just a great person to have around! Her hard work propelled our most recent live project Showwomen on a national tour in 2022 to wide coverage and acclaim. We wouldn’t do a project with her! ".
Marisa Carnesky

"Abstrakt Publicity provided Trans Creative with promotion and publicity for their 2021 Trans Vegas Festival after being strongly recommended by a major London venue. Anna was absolutely fantastic and most importantly, genuinely cares about the projects she works on. Our reach increased dramatically thanks to Anna's hard work and her huge roster of connections. We have never had the kind of wrap around PR support that Anna offers before - will hope Anna wants to work with us next time."
Kate O'Donnell, Artistic Director of Trans Creative

"Anna has taken a singularly passionate and tenacious approach to her work with The Marlborough Theatre that has meant she has really got under the skin of why we do what we do. She believes in us and this matters. Her work has produced great results for us, coverage across media platforms that has amplified our voice locally and nationally."
David Sheppeard, Co Artistic Director of the Marlborough Theatre, Brighton

"We loved working with Anna Goodman, she is the hardest working PR in show business"
Simon Casson, Duckie

"Anna Goodman/Abstrakt's work for Cut Festival was instrumental for us to reach vast and new audiences, providing the perfect platforms for the line-up as well as the festival itself. The breadth of coverage was outstanding and through tenacity and work ethics, we were able to have a strong media presence for all artists as well as the organisers, in both mainstream and underground media outlets. It is not every day that a niche contemporary art festival reaches the BBC News and Hackney Citizen at the same time. Highly recommended."
Jamie Lewis Hadley and Xavier de Sousa - Director and Curator, and Executive Producer at Cut Festival

"I've worked with Abstrakt on many different performance projects from site specific variety shows to straight up theatre. Anna provides an all-round approach that is as creative, exciting and engaging as the artists she works with."
Scottee - Artist, performer & broadcaster

"Working with Abstrakt Publicity on a recent UK tour has been a wonderful experience that really elevated the project and brought the work to a much wider audience. It is rare to find people who offer such commitment to a project, with a real understanding and enthusiasm for what it is about. The breadth of coverage we got was fantastic and this is clearly down to Anna's incredible experience, wealth of contacts and dedication to the work. I would work with Abstrakt again whenever I get the chance, and would highly recommend them."
Rosana Cade - Live Artist

"Anna's word is ‘the word’. She reached every part of the globe when spreading the news of the Alternative Miss World."
Andrew Logan - Artist

"Anna is a joy to work with. She is proactive, pragmatic and unpretentious. Anna has a highly creative approach to her work and thoughtfully applies considerable experience to the context of each situation, which makes for coherent decision-making and effective action. I feel in capable hands when I work with her"
Dickie Beau - Artist, Performer and Research Fellow, School of English & Drama, Queen Mary University, London and Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre, University of London.

"Working with Anna Goodman has been one of the genuine surprises and pleasures in producing literary events for the LGBTQ+ community over the past 3 years. She has been instrumental in establishing The Coast is Queer literature festival in the national literary calendar which, thanks to her good works, now reaches and attracts writers and audiences from the UK and far beyond. Anna’s knowledge of press and media, locally and nationally, combined with the in-depth interest she takes in every project she works on has produced outstanding results for us every time. She has secured articles in publications and features in media that we would never have expected to take in interest in this work, engaging specialist and mainstream audiences in our relatively niche activity.

Alongside her skill in engaging press and media, Anna has consistently gone the extra mile in helping us produce content that works and has been astute and thoughtful in placing the right writers with the right interviewer or publication. Confidence in the knowledge that we are in her safe pair of hands is gold dust and we look forward to working together on future projects."

Lesley Wood, Chief Executive, New Writing South

"We really enjoyed working with Anna for the Spring 2014 tour of Artificial Things. She really took the time to understand who we are as a company and took great care over communicating our strengths to the press. She's fantastic at thinking out of the box and making our company stand out from the crowd. We are very satisfied with the outcome, so thank you Anna!"
Sho Shibata - Company Producer - Stopgap Dance Company

"“A Sentence Shared with Anna- Is The Connection Made In Heaven !”"
David Hoyle: Artist and performer

"Anna is great to work with. Committed and creative, she has helped us transform the kind of press coverage the Albany receives. Anna is a realist but always ambitious and determined. From local to specialist to national media, no stone is left unturned."
Gavin Barlow - Chief Executive/Artistic Director - The Albany

"Anna Goodman really understands the kind of work we do and the diversity of the audiences we are trying to reach. Each campaign is bespoke. Abstrakt has its own way of doing things - and it works! "
Jan Ryan - Director - UK Arts International

"In order to market an artist one has to understand the artist, their creative process and context, delving under the skin to find what makes them unique in order to maximise their audience potential. Anna has made this her lifelong work, creaking a bespoke marriage between arts and media outlets. The artist should never shout, the work should and Anna is the megaphone for my work"
Benji Reid - Producer, devisor and director

Anna Goodman is that very rare person on the business side of theatre and performance, the one who truly loves art and can communicate that love and understanding, be it theatre, music , poetry or any event that entails the participation of the public. Anna understands not only what is necessary from a business or producers point of view but she equally understands the artist's and audience's point of view too. I cannot recommend Anna Goodman highly enough!
