Aiden Ossovani

Aiden OssovaniAiden comes from the Gold Coast but he’s terrible at surfing. He completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at Bond University, majoring in film, philosophy and journalism. Meanwhile, he spent most of his free time volunteering at Spotlight Theatrical Company as a member of the Production Committee. He calls himself a writer, but he’s also worn many other hats including director, actor, singer, bass player, designer, editor, videographer, and he once tried a cowboy hat but thought it was a bit much.

At NIDA, Aiden had the opportunity to delve into his writing and explore exciting new forms of storytelling. He was lucky enough to work with award-winning director Leticia Cáceres on the production of SIX, which was part of NIDA’s Digital Theatre Festival. He co-wrote a short script, which was developed into a short film by properties student, Rhyanna Martinussen. And he got the chance to devise theatre pieces with Kylie Harris’s company, Midnight Feast.

Aiden looks forward to a thrilling career in the arts industry, and might take some surfing lessons if he feels like it.
