The Elite Domystique
...some call her an anti-establishment revolutionary, others say she's an anarchist but she prefers to simply be called "Mum"
She's the Elite Domystique, housekeeper to the rich and famous.
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 the dominant culture - 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.

400,000 Australian women over the age of 50 are currently homeless.
To have a home to care for is a privilege.
We are not your servants.
We are your mothers.
Feminism stops at the place motherhood starts.

SUPPORTING NEW PROJECTS THAT EVOLVE CONSCIOUSNESS
Wise people are builders - they build families, businesses and communities. And through intelligence and insight their enterprises are established and endure. Because of their skilled leadership, the hearts of people are filled with the treasures of wisdom and the pleasures of spiritual wealth.
The Passion Translation
A house is built by wisdom. The house is more than a structure with roof and a floor. It becomes a metaphor for families, churches, businesses and enterprises.
