Resident Artists

Our Resident Artists

“Theatre is an art form born of collaboration and a theatrical experience is created by artists whose innovative and inspired work take the form of many disciplines,” said Dámaso Rodriguez, Artistic Director. “Artists Rep honors this core company of Resident Artists by recognizing their creative contributions to our theatre.”

Artists Rep's Resident Artists Company provides an artistic home for theatre professionals where both artist and company can mutually benefit. Artists Rep productions feature the work of a core group of accomplished Resident Artists, each with a shared history and a shorthand for collaboration, working alongside guest artists from Portland and beyond.

These Resident Artists not only populate the stages and back stages of Artists Rep, but also work year-round at theatres elsewhere in Portland, the region and throughout the country. Together, they drive the expansion of Artists Rep’s education and community engagement programs, and contribute to artistic programming by developing new work and piloting new programs with the support of Artists Rep’s administrative staff and board of directors.

These artists represent a diverse mix of actors, designers, directors and writers who are crafting acclaimed careers through a combination of talent, drive and entrepreneurial spirit. They are educators, activists and community leaders who play a major role in defining the cultural landscape of Portland.
