“All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.”
― Seán O’Casey

 

We all have our stage. Scripted and improvised actors and stand-up comedians have an actual stage. Some of us play on the stage of everyday life, trying to speak and behave like “normal” human beings. Stagecraft is the technical skills of acting: blocking, vocals, physicality. These are the skills that help keep an audience engaged so they will listen to what you’re saying.

December’s Improv Skills Drop-In improv classes are focused on training your stagecraft skills to be a more dynamic performer and speaker. Topics to be covered include: physicality, space work, vocals, and theatricality

He has performed at the Oahu Fringe Festival in 2015 and made two appearances at Improvaganza.

Aaron’s dedication to providing performers with opportunities has radically increased the size of the Hawaii comedy community over the past four years. He is continuously launching new initiatives to raise money for his favorite charities, St Baldricks Foundation and Child’s Play Charity, and constantly seeks new ways to expand the performing arts community in Hawaii, mostly through mixing different arts into one show or making pancakes. Aaron continues to teach, host, and perform improv at multiple venues including Station Bar and Lounge, Ong King Art Center, Hawaiian Brian’s, The Studio and Hfi COOP.

Aaron is a real foodie and loves ‘P’ Foods: pancakes, potatoes, and probably pickles. Also, puppets. But, I don’t think he eats those.
