From the moment she was born, Brittany Andonovski always knew she was destined to perform. At the age of four, she would regularly choreograph and perform shows on her front lawn blasting Queen’s ”Bohemian Rhapsody”, as she made sure all her neighbors knew it was ‘showtime’.
Born in Australia to immigrant parents, Brittany lived a childhood filled with curiosity. She found herself at a crossroads between her families’ traditional European lifestyle, and her newly acquired westernised outlook. Not knowing where she belonged, her experiences opened the door to her curiosity, seeing her want to understand and learn as much as she could about people, their experiences and what makes them tick. In turn this allowed her to discover herself.
Brittany was always interested in people’s unique stories, and wasn’t afraid to ask questions, even if it meant interrogating her 60-year-old aunties and uncles at birthday parties trying to find out their most intimate life stories, an act that got her in trouble a few times too many. Moreover, she began imitating people and mimicking their behaviors. It probably comes as no surprise that she ended up studying the Meisner technique for three years; for Brittany, it allowed her to freely explore and learn to understand the complexities of life through another one’s eyes.
Brittany’s life has—and always will be—about sharing peoples’ stories and experiences to a wider audience making them feel a rollercoaster of emotions and maybe, just maybe, understand the complexities of human life and differing values we all hold. If she does her job right—ultimately, she is able to bridge the gap between social and political differences.
