After completing a Doctorate in Comparative Drama at Cambridge University in 1964, David George began a peripatetic career which has seen him teach and live in California, Germany, France, Malaysia, China and Australia. There he took advantage of the proximity of Asia to undertake a further 21 field trips — to India, Bali, Java, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Nepal . .
These led to a series of books, monographs and papers on Asian and comparative theatre, and 21 theatre productions, some of them similarly intercultural in their ambition and inspiration.
He is currently Professor and Chair of Drama Theatre and Dance at Queens College, City University of New York where he is working on a Buddhist Musical (“Sky Dancer”), establishing a multicultural theatre company, and continuing his research on Buddhist theatre and philosophy.
