Living Legends (And Dead Ones Too) at Edinburgh Fringe ★★★★★
Brigitte Aphrodite takes you on a legendary journey bursting with joy, lols and unsung heroes.
This mini-masterpiece is a testament to the power of positivity, inclusive theatre making and the therapeutic collective emotional space Brigitte and Quiet Boy create.
From Bowie to Poly Styrene, Greek-South Londoner Brigitte Aphrodite celebrates legends and proves that anyone can be a legendary figure. The concept is simple, but the emotional depth is real and asks the audience to let go of their stresses to create a ritual space for storytelling, connection, comedy and hope.
The songs are supremely catchy, the poems full of surprises, and the energy is pure pop punk. There’s no better way to spend your fringe than in the warmth of this rainbow ray of light.
The show’s central premise of legends – and adding your own legends to Aphrodite’s dress – is hopefully a sign that the show will live on. It is perfect for kids of all ages including this 37 year old reviewer, and deserves a future life in venues around the UK.
