Jesús de Vega & Chai Blaq Choreopop


Jesús de Vega is a Spanish dancer/choreographer, currently a guest artist at ICK (Amsterdam City Company for Contemporary Dance). His organic choreographies are recognisable for its dark and poetic atmospheres as well as its powerful yet vulnerable physicality. Extremes, and a way to find balance between them, play an important role in his work.

In Choreopop he forms a duo with the Dutch Congolese singer and multi-instrumentalist Chai Blaq (Michelle N'Toumba). She studied at the Academy of Pop Culture in Leeuwarden. Her music is often typed as a mix between R&B and electronic styles like dubstep and stairs with a freaky African-American vibe. In this interdisciplinary project they use body sounds as the base of the music, questioning what a music/dance concert could be like.
