Where We've Been, Little One (2019)
Where We’ve Been, Little One is a solo work where the artist bravely exposes herself through the inner dialogue of her past self. In this personal work of physical theatre, she bounces back and forth between what her voice says and how she actually feels in the moment, contradicting herself, getting swept up in old habits, and coming to terms with her journey towards self-acceptance.
The piece was endearing in its vulnerability... Bridget’s vivid presence and ability to convey emotion in the subtlest of movements, ensured it always remained engaging. - Hannah Brierley

Who's Afraid of a Pussy Cat? (2017)
A female body morphs between the animalistic and her femininity. Distorting ideas of desirability and danger, Who’s Afraid of a Pussy Cat? is a solo work exploring themes of beauty, power, and perception. The performer adopts the persona of a tiger, fusing it with her physical identity as a woman. Taking ownership of her body and the power within it, the artist threatens the patriarchy and toys with its fears of the female.
"Lappin fills the entire place with her perfume and builds a prey-hunter relationship with the audience seducing us with her powerful manifesto of the female existence." - Asteropi Tia Chatzinikola

The Art of Exposure (2016)
The Art of Exposure is a solo work inspired by ninjas and hiding oneself as a means of survival. The performer presents herself as she feels she needs to, blurring the line between honesty and deception, illusion and truth. She conceals herself and yet, in the process reveals more of herself in an intimate self-portrait.
"...she spends the entire performance shedding her camouflage just enough to establish it, teasing us with her ability to materialise out of the dark and leave an indelible image... It is the art of exposure by stealth and suggestion and it is remarkably persuasive." - Nicolas Minns

This is It Folks! (2015)
"This is it, Folks!" is an site-specific, interactive solo work modelled after mid-20th century cartoon shorts. In her attempt to become a live-action cartoon, the artist takes audiences through the stages of a show, infusing comedic gags and turning the logic of what is done in real-life upside down.
"Very fresh and entertaining. A bit noisy and looney too!" - Audience comments
Commissioned by the Place. Premiere July 2015
