Victoria Maria Moyer

Facilitating Creative Journeys

I would give all metaphors

in return for one word

drawn out of my breast like a rib

for one word
contained within the boundaries

of my skin

but apparently this is not possible


and just to say—I love

I run around like mad
picking up handfuls of birds
and my tenderness
which after all is not made of water
asks the water for a face

-(Zbigniew Herbert, trans. Czeslaw Milosz)

I’m Victoria.

For now, this page is where I house various bits and pieces of things I do or have done.

Some of my playwriting projects may be found here.

I have frequently worked as a theatre educator, providing a space for young people as well as adults to explore their artistic perspectives.

I am also a certified Hypnotherapist through the International Association of Counselors and Therapists. I offer individual and group sessions. Currently, I’m facilitating free Saturday workshops at the Ahimsa House in Philadelphia; it’s for anyone interested in Butoh, Paratheatre, and Psychosomatic resonance/healing work.
