Creative Director and Designer of art projects
Kilkenny, Ireland


Bridget graduated in 2017 from IADT with a 1 class honours degree in Design for Stage and Screen specialising in Production Design. In 2018 she moved to Taiwan seeking experiences in the art world that would leave a valuable impact on her artistic style and mindset. There she was introduced to the world of carnival and street theatre and spent two and a half years in Taiwan developing skills in puppetry, sculpture, mask making and performance. In 2019 she had the opportunity to be the Creative Director and Designer of all in-house art projects of the annual Dream Parade Carnival, South East Asia's largest street carnival. Over the last three years she has begun creating her short theatrical shows and performances both on stage and for film. She has collaborated with artists and performers from various disciplines and cultures. Her style has varied depending on the project but most of her work is heavily inspired though pre-existing texts and folklore. She enjoys incorporating a wide range of mediums into her creations, such as puppetry, projection, costume and set design, sound, acro-yoga and dance. Bridget is a self-trained fire-dancer of 5 years; mainly working with fire poi however she also performs with veil poi.


I was selected with my colleagues in CREATION 21/22, a truly unique programme which was created for performing artists at all stages of their careers and across a range of disciplines (dance, theatre, circus, spectacle, performance art, street arts), to develop their practice, network, learn and showcase work. It will include in-person collaboration opportunities in Ireland, as well an international residency in 2022 The project offers artistic development opportunities through mentoring, coaching, residencies and ‘in-progress’ presentation opportunities as part of Carlow Arts Festival, Dublin Dance Festival, National Circus Festival and Danseur Festival. This project is an opportunity to deeply collaborate with artists from various performing art forms and areas of experience. This residency is specifically focussed on performing artists in the East and Southeast region of Ireland, as well as European partners. It will be designed hand in hand with makers from the Theatre, Dance, and Circus/Street Art/Spectacle worlds to ensure it is delivering to the participating artists what they need at this time. The project is flexible and will focuses on creating space to support artists in the ways they currently need.
