Memet Ali Alabora (born 25 November 1977, Istanbul) is a Turkish film and theatre actor. He is the son of actors Mustafa Alabora and Betül Arım.



The eldest child of a family of artists, Alabora's first performing experiences were in the plays The Matchmaker, Fiddler on the Roof, and West Side Story, which were performed in English by the theater branch of his school. In high school, Alabora also acted in plays by Shakespeare and Orhan Veli. In 1994, with support from his high school, Özel Boğaziçi Lisesi, Alabora founded a semi-professional theater.

His first professional acting position was in the play Acaba Hangisi?, performed at the Tiyatro Istanbul. At the same time, between 1995 and 1997, he worked as a reporter for the TV program A Takımı ("The A Team"), broadcasted on ATV. Alabora also acted in the television series Kara Melek ("Black Angel") and played the lead role in Yılan Hikâyesi ("Snake Story"). In 1999, he played the lead role in the film Kayıkçı ("Boatman"), a Turkish-Greek joint production.

Alabora graduated from the Theater Department of the Istanbul University State Conservatory. He received his Master’s Degree from Yıldız Technical University’s Faculty of Art and Design. Alabora is one of the founders of garajistanbul, a contemporary performing arts institution where he worked until May 2010. He is married to actress Pinar Ogun.
