"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."
- Eva Yaa Asantewaa, InfiniteBody

    An 89-year old love story comes to an end with ferocity and grace.
    15-minute solo

  • New Dance Alliance


  • Victoria's most recent solo is THIS IS MY LAST ATTEMPT AT FAME, writing a guide for living and a screenplay which is a twist on a love story set in Bali. Please contact her for more information about any of these endeavors.

    "This Is My Last Attempt At Fame" is about making art without fame, odes to animals and finding the sexy within domesticity. Storytelling, dance, music, poetry, humor, love letters, admissions, declarations and a little madcap fun make up this solo piece. Throughout it is the acknowledgement of time passing. Under it is the desire for comfort fighting to overtake creativity. At the heart of it is you. You who thought your life would look one way and it looks another. This is an offering for you.

    Whether you are a novice who is new to crafting your own performance work or a pro that wants to refine your skills, you will be introduced to a variety of concepts to help you create work highlighting your individual voice. You will gain a foundation for creating an original performance piece using tools of physical theater, imagery, archetypal energy, intuitive listening and character development.
