Death and little death

Biography

Phyllis Foundis is a writer, lover, mother, producer, story hoarder and multi-award-winning TV host of Foundis, a talk show for men, by men and those who love ‘em.

After a decade of copywriting for uber brands like Mercedes, Sheraton and Dior, Phyllis took a leap of faith (or lost her mind) and in 2004 performed in a self-penned, one-woman show, the virgin club. Staged in London’s West End, the Edinburgh Festival and Melbourne’s International Comedy Festival, the show won critical acclaim and a loyal following of lipstick vibrator lovers.

In 2008, Phyllis graduated with high distinctions in Screenwriting and Producing from the Australian, Film, Television & Radio School. She then joined Hugh Jackman’s production company, Seed, where she appraised TV and film scripts.

In 2012, Phyllis made her acting debut alongside John Waters in Burleigh Smith’s, Ragtime.

A champion of intimacy that goes beyond (just) the bedroom, Phyllis is currently writing, The Joy of Sags: Sexual adventures from the pre-menopausal frontline, due for release in 2015.

In a surprising and rewarding talk, Phyllis will share with us the unexpected settings for her own illuminating, emotional milestones and lead us on a very personal journey through ‘little death’ to death and the defining moments they can unveil.

Life’s greatest lightbulb moments emerge out of darkness and when we totally, deliciously lose control.
