Georgette Dashiell has been with the Portland State Theater department since 2011. Her passion is teaching theater from a wholistic perspective. She is at the moment engaged in learning all she can about theater practices globally and how theater is used to heal, to open dialogue about social issues, and to give voice and visibility to those who are voiceless and invisible around the world. She has an M.S. in Theater Arts with an emphasis in Directing from Portland State University. She also studied traditional Japanese theater under Dr. Larry Kominz at Portland State University. Her directing credits include: Savage in Limbo, Antigone's Red, The Mill Wheel, The Gift, Guys and Dolls, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
