Actor Victoria Libertore to visit Otterbein

The Otterbein University Department of Theatre and Dance will present an interactive lecture and performance by actor, writer and Otterbein graduate Victoria Libertore from 7 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, March 11.

The event in the Campus Center Theatre, 100 W. Home St., is free and open to the public as part of Libertore's three-day residency supported by the Otterbein Artist Series.

Libertore, the creator of six solo shows, will offer a performance tailored to the audience, which will choose from a selection 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?

Other, similar provocative questions also may be included. While on campus, Libertore will work with students pursuing theater majors to create theater without a published script or any technical design. The students already have begun working with Libertore via Skype.
