Alan Dilworth is a theatre director, playwright and teacher. He is an associate artistic director and a Drummond-Dorrance Fellow at Soulpepper Theatre Company in Toronto. He is also co-artistic director of Sheep No Wool. His work explores personal, social and political transformation and is rooted in questions of 'self', inspired by the tension between Zen Buddhism and modernity. 

His primary area of investigation is in creating a contemporary text based theatre, but he also works in physical and image-based forms. His work privileges vulnerability, presence, simplicity and the unknown. Alan has directed across Canada, and internationally.
