"She's a smart, gifted performer, confident in voice, timing, and movement
in space, an actress with the wiliness of a shaman in the underworld and the
surefootedness of a goat on a thin ledge."

Incapable of intimacy beyond pining for unavailable women and life beyond the
whiskey bottle, our heroine has finally gotten her life together. She's on a
trip of a lifetime in one of the most beautiful and exotic places
in the world with an amazing woman, but she's about to sabotage this life
beyond her wildest dreams. Part memoir, part study of pop culture and our society's
obsession with the high of intrigue and having the life sucked out of us. Powerful,
profound and funny, "No Need for Seduction" reveals our darkest nooks and crannies
as dangerous, necessary and liberating. Libertore tells a story like a motherf***er.

Archetypal Performance Workshop
CHECK BACK FOR THE NEXT PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP
Develop your own performance piece using Victoria Libertore's unique method of archetypal energy work.
In this six-week workshop, you will learn a foundation for creating an original
performance using tools of physical theatre, archetypal energy, intuition, character
exploration and imagery. Each participant creates original material and builds
on it from week to week. There will be group exercises as well as time for each
person to present work. All types of performers are welcome: solo, collaborations,
text-based and movement-based. The workshop will be a safe and warm environment
for you to express your creativity and walk away with performance-ready material.
All levels of experience are welcome. Whether you are a novice that is new to
making your own creative work or a pro that wants to refine your skills, you
will benefit from these tools and from watching each others' journeys as artists
in action. Please note that this workshop builds from week to week.
