Theatre & Dance presents

Victoria Libertore

Tuesday, March 11, 1014 • 7-10 p.m.
Campus Center Theatre
100 W. Home St., Westerville

The Otterbein University Department of Theatre and Dance presents an interactive lecture and performance by actor, writer and Otterbein alumna, Victoria Libertore, from 7-10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11, in the Campus Center Theatre. The event is free and open to the public as part of Libertore’s three-day residency supported by the Otterbein Artist Series.

Libertore will offer an interactive and adventurous lecture and performance, tailored to the audience, which will be asked to help shape the evening by choosing from a potpourri of topics such as:
  • Why fear is a good thing;
  • How to get naked in public;
  • Making art work… financially;
  • How meditation can save your life;
  • Do you have to be crazy to be an artist?;
  • Why not to compare and despair;
  • Finding your own path as an artist;
  • And other deep and provocative questions. 

Also during her time on campus, Libertore will work with bachelor of arts in theatre majors to create theatre without a pre-published script and without any sort of pre-arranged technical design. The students have already been learning from Libertore via Skype prior to her visit. Otterbein’s bachelor of arts in theatre major is designed for students interested in a wide variety of theatre related fields including directing, playwriting, management, performing and technical areas.

Libertore is an actress, writer, curator, emcee and teacher.  She is the creator of six solo shows: Camille: The Forgotten Artist,stalk(her)The Should DreamMy Journey of DecayGIRL MEAT and No Need for Seduction. She has performed at Carolines on Broadway, Dance New Amsterdam, Dixon Place, Joyce Soho and PS122, as well as in Boston, Montreal, Philadelphia, Provincetown, Toronto and Washington, D.C. Libertore emcees throughout NYC as her incomparable, faux Liza Minnelli where she utilizes her improvisational skills to make “people laugh so hard that their faces hurt.” Her short plays include A Man with a LimpHow Crazy Joe Met His Wife and Monster and Lola, a Humana Festival Finalist. She is passionate about encouraging other artists to create their own work, and she has curated and produced dozens of local and a few international artists with backgrounds in performance, variety arts, music, storytelling, comedy and dance. Libertore graduated from Otterbein in 1998 and was a Brooklyn Arts Exchange Theater Artist-in-Residence. She serves on the advisory committee of New Dance Alliance.
