Aaron Kahn (b. 1975, Chicago) is a performance, sound, and vocal artist working internationally for over 20 years. While his investigations and collaborations are primarily political, Kahn’s oeuvre is more socratic than critical. Ethics rather than aesthetics motivate his research on the nature of artist-audience dynamics.

His creations and interpretations have been seen at Montréal Arts Interculturels, Théâtre de l'Épée de Bois (Paris); Bangkok Theatre Festival; Minnesota Opera Company; Podatik Kolkata; Festival Transmusicales (Rennes); Unsound Festival/Cricoteka (Krakow); Cincinnati Playhouse in The Park; NOA Festival/Lithuanian National Drama Theatre; Actors’ Gang (Los Angeles); Siauliai Drama Theatre; and in London at The Calvert 22 Gallery

His work is supported by National Foundation for Advancement in The Arts, European Cultural Foundation, Lithuanian Ministry of Culture, Shimon Peres Foundation, non-sequitur foundation, and Puffin Foundation. Kahn, winner of the YoungArts National Competition, is a U.S. Presidential Scholar in The Arts finalist, and an active member of The International Theatre Institute (ITI-UNESCO).
