Anna Goodman launched Abstrakt Publicity in July 1999. Ever since, Abstrakt has worked with a multitude of clients creating maximum awareness for performance art, theatre, dance, spoken word, circus and more. Abstrakt Publicity publicises national tours, one-off performances, events and festivals via print and online media as well as television and radio. During the pandemic, Abstrakt extensively publicised digital performances and festivals while venues were closed.

Prior to 1999, Anna worked in London and New York, developing PR contacts and skills. Her first PR job in London was publicising fundraising 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 specialist 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. Over 20 years later, Abstrakt still works with Jonzi D via the annual and influential Hip Hop dance festival Breakin' Convention, at Sadler’s Wells and beyond, originally launched in 2004.

Current and recent projects include campaigns for Cade & MacAskill, BAC Beatbox Academy and Mohamed Toukabri all at Battersea Arts Centre, Martin O’Brien at Whitechapel Gallery, FACET at VSSL Studio, Certain Blacks Ensemble Festival at Royal Docks and Breakin’ Convention’s 20th anniversary at Sadler’s Wells alongside the 2023 national tour.
