Vincent E. Thomas/VTDance contemplates acts of humanity in the deeply moving, multi-layered work- iWitness. “I Pledge” explores simple truths in human behaviors and implied truths in human documents. “Render & Proceed” investigates the convolution of media and its impact on the human spirit. “Come Change” considers the past and present for a hopeful tomorrow.
Collaborators include: Dwayne Hess (video), Cecylia Barcyzk (cello), Daniel Jose Older (sound design, text), Jodi Ozimek (costume)
iWitness is the solo work based on the award-winning, evening length- Witness. Witness was commissioned by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as part of 2008 Performing Arts for Everyone and the Millennium Stage.
