this creative nomad is a blog and podcast by Aoife Carry. It is an exploration of creativity and the creative process. Aoife discusses her own creative practice in the blog posts, and the podcast is a series of interviews with entertainment professionals about their creative lives.
Aoife is a circus director, show maker and writer.
She has been working in entertainment since 2000, and has performed as an actress in classical theatre plays, written theatre shows, created early-years performances using circus, created unique spectacle performances and acts for private large-scale events and most recently was travelling the world as an Artistic Director for Cirque Du Soleil’s show Corteo.
Aoife was based in Macau, S.A.R. for four years where she worked with Franco Dragone Entertainment on the show The House of Dancing Water, and then became part of the team that set up MGM’s first theatre in Asia. With Cirque Du Soleil she has toured Arena’s in the USA, Canada, and the majority of Europe. This came to a stop in early 2020 when the world ground to a halt.
Aoife is currently based in Ireland and is creating new spectacle shows that draw on her diverse background and merge elements of theatrical storytelling, the intimacy of immersive performance and the scale of Spectacle.
