Co-Artistic Director, Project Director, Designer, Performer - Everett Dance Theatre
Aaron is a co-founder and co-artistic director of Everett Dance Theatre (1986), bringing a variety of performing, design and technical skills to his work with the company. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in Film and Video Studies, and from the Trinity Repertory Conservatory in Theater, Aaron began integrating his interests through the development of multimedia dance performances with Everett. As co-creator and performer in Everett’s critically acclaimed piece Home Movies (2004), Aaron also provided co-direction, set design, and technical direction. In addition to constructing many of the innovative props, set pieces, and untraditional projection surfaces used by Everett, Aaron renovated a carriage house into the company's own studio theater, The Carriage House Stage and School, which opened in 1994. Aaron has received numerous Project Grants and Fellowships from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts. In 2007, Aaron received a Multi-Arts Production Fund grant from Creative Capital and a National Endowment for the Arts grant to develop a follow-up to his successful performance piece Silas (2003), about his autistic nephew. The new piece, entitled Silas the Teenager, premiered in Spring 2009.
