Her multi-media productions – composed of storytelling, video, movement, playful skips and jumps, enlightening self-discovery, accusatory glances, awkward pauses, and more – question gender, self-expression, and what it means to be at home in one’s own body. She’s an instructor at The Piven Theatre Workshop, a syndicated blogger with BlogHer and has performed all over Chicago.
Vanessa Vincent, born on the south side of chicago, vanessa began studying suzuki piano at the age of three, but learned how to use her voice while attending gospel services in storefront churches and by singing along with madonna and cyndi lauper tapes blaring outta her pink boom box. With too many musical influences and style appreciations to name and currently armed with piano, ukulele, and some of the kindest musicians in chicago, vanessa rocks the folk circuit via the old town school of folk music in sunny chicago, il and hopes that through continued dedication and the release of her songs into the atmosphere, she might truly find her niche.
