Victoria Libertore’s work includes eight theatrical solo shows, performance art, variety, burlesque and improv. She has performed her work throughout NYC from Coney Island's boardwalk to Off-Broadway, including venues such as Barrow Street Theater, Carolines on Broadway, Joe's Pub, Joyce Soho, PS122 as well as in Boston, Chicago, Montreal, Philadelphia, Provincetown, Toronto and Washington D.C. Victoria emcees in theaters, comedy clubs and at events impersonating Liza Minnelli in which she utilizes her improvisational skills to make "people laugh so hard that their faces hurt."
Libertore is passionate about encouraging other artists to create their own work and has curated dozens of artists with backgrounds in performance, variety arts, burlesque, music, comedy and dance with a focus on LGBTQ+ and BIPOC artists. In addition to facilitating her own performance and writing workshops, she has taught at Otterbein University and Hastings College. She was a Humana Festival Finalist, has received a Young Alumni Award for Research and Creative Achievement from Otterbein University, and is a recipient of the Doric Wilson Independent Playwright Award given by the NYC Innovative Theatre Awards. Victoria has had the support of artist residencies, space grants, funding and retreats from Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Dance New Amsterdam, Dixon Place, Earthdance and New Dance Alliance.
She has a BFA in theater from Otterbein University and has studied various approaches to acting including Grotowski, Chekov, Viewpoints, long-form improvisation and Balinese mask. In addition to the performing arts, Victoria is a student and practitioner of the esoteric arts. Victoria performed in Great God Pan last year, co-produced at Crash Acting, where she currently studies. She is thrilled to be collaborating with this incredible community in class and in At the Wedding.
