Ahmed El-Alfy is a Theatre/Film Director based in London.
Albeit being slave to the modern corporate world in various locations including Cairo, Dubai, and Hong Kong, he has always found ways to creatively and illogically make/bend time to involve/impose himself in the local community theatre scene. El-Alfy quit his day job and has done his MA in Theatre Directing at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
He wants to create a world on stage that could also exist in the imaginations of the audience and is very interested in identity, where he thinks about a performance as a way of measuring ourselves against other possibilities of ourselves.
