The Elite Domystique

Leading a revolution of the heART

Bridget BoVardia spent 7 years cleaning the houses of the rich and famous primarily in Pearl Beach on the NSW Central Coast.  

Most of her work as an artist, performer and philosopher is drawn from this experience.  

I was fortunate to see Bridget’s performance for International Women’s Day 2021at the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus. 

I was inspired by her incisive writing and eloquent delivery.

I believe that Elite Domystique's role is that of a Gatekeeper, heralding the dawning of a new frontier of theatrical expression, by traversing uncomfortable landscapes and clearing away outmoded structures of patriarchal domination - creating a transparent and liminal space.  A place where equity and united human solidarity provide the impetus for raising consciousness as a necessary social change.

The arts has a vital role to play in a time where we are being forced to evaluate our place as women and change makers. Bridget’s work speaks to these principles - her many years of experience in media injects her work with an authentic and raw essence that is palpable to her audience. 

Elite Domystique  is one of the brave pioneers marching through the battlefield of corruption and lies, using live performance  not only as a story telling vehicle but also to uncover the messy underbelly that lurks beneath our society.   She carries the torch of theatrical flame to burn through the remnants of a dying patriarchy with an aim to restore balance with her deep cleansing repertoire.

Bridget Ninness' own story that occurred 20 years earlier opened the #metoo movement in Australia in 2017.     Over 50 million women worldwide said #metoo.  Reported November 2017 on ABC's 7.30 Report, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian Women's Weekly & various other mainstream National and local media outlets.  She was the only one that took action at the time of the event and was motivated to open the conversation around abuse in our society which was a particularly relevant precursor and lense into the subsequent world events as we are witnessing unfold now. 

Bridget BoVardia spent 2 years living at an Aboriginal Women's Sacred Lore Camp between 2016 and 2018 outside Byron Bay.   Thousands of women from around the world joined the elders to come together in reconciliation.  The women's voices continue to be silenced.

Mental health professionals from Doctors without Borders (MSF) were forced to leave the Asylum Seekers Detention Centre on Nauru in Oct 11, 2018 leaving many people and particularly children in critical condition and without any appropriate care. The Australian government has so far refused to acknowledge the pleas of the doctors and the Australian people in demanding compassionate care be given to these people immediately.
