Aaron Kilercioglu

Director London

(He/Him)
I'm a director, deviser, and writer.
After growing up in Vienna, to Turkish-Canadian parents, I now live in London, working on various projects in film & theatre. I am drawn to stories and ideas that are fresh, nuanced, and challenging.

Currently I'm most interested in stories about or with the Jewish and Middle Eastern diaspora, as well as work that deals with the climate crisis.

I try and make work that asks urgent questions and means something to us right now.
