Aaron announces new EdFringe show
August 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival or EdFringe as most people call it. We couldn’t be more excited to announce that Aaron’s brand new stage show, Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN is coming to EdFringe this August.
In Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN Aaron pushes the boundaries of what people are capable of. Without giving too much away, you will witness members of the audience perform the inexplicable in a series of superhuman feats.
AWAKEN takes inspiration from the true stories we’ve all heard about mothers lifting cars and ripping off doors with their bare hands. Whilst training as a doctor these stories were used to demonstrate what the human body is truly capable of and it captured Aaron’s imagination. What if Aaron could recreate these feats live on stage?
Our most exciting and ambitious show to date, AWAKEN combines theatre, hypnosis, magic and mind reading to produce a spectacle never seen before. Written with and directed by national award winning magician Sam Fitton, AWAKEN is a fascinating journey that dares you to believe. Witty remarks, good humour & edge of your seat theatre will make AWAKEN the EdFringe show audiences can’t stop talking about.
AWAKEN is unlike any other show you will see. It employs hypnosis that is designed to elevate the audiences experience by showing them it’s possibilities, rather than embarrassing volunteers. These amazing feats are what people love about Aaron’s shows and in AWAKEN we’ve really taken it to a whole new level.
After graduating in 2015, Sam and Aaron formed Lost Luggage Productions that produced last year’s sell-out, critically acclaimed 5* EdFringe show ‘Mind Games‘ as well as this years debut of Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN & A Case of Wonders. Most recently Sam & Aaron have been commissioned by Channel 4 to present a brand new TV show which will see Aaron hypnotise couples to forget each other. This show will air on E4 later this year and we are incredibly excited for people to see it!
