Alan’s performance disciplines include theatre, storytelling, dance and stand-up comedy — all specific to the representation of the lived experience of disability. His work explores disability in terms of relationships – relationships within peer groups at school, work and in the community, relationships within intimacy and family, as well as relationships with personal hopes, dreams and desires. Mainstream culture often treats disability as separate from all other life experiences such as falling in love, merging one’s life with another, and raising a family. But disabled people have something unique to say about these types of experiences — and it’s the very experience of living with a disability that makes those stories important to tell.
