Choreopop - Jesús de Vega / Chai Blaq
Choreopop is a choreographed music album, a hybrid between a dance performance, a pop music concert and live video-clips. Where body and voice become inseparable.
Musician Chai Blaq and choreographer Jesús de Vega collaborate in this multidisciplinary project with the aim of merging two disciplines and their creative processes.
They both find inspiration in things that seem broken: society, relationships, climate, bodies etc. CHOREOPOP is a celebration of the healing power of unity as a way to repair social or emotional fractures.
Chai Blaq is a musician with a profound love for Asian aesthetics, mysterious folklore and pop-culture, she is searching for a place to root her arts, through fluidly shifting between drumming, singing, producing and escaping contemporary impressionism of her own emotions.
Jesús de Vega’s work is inspired by socio-political issues which he dissects and blends with his artistic sensitivity, a touch of entertainment value and pop culture references. The resulting cocktail is cathartic, mysterious and poetic, presenting an emotional landscape of the times we live in.

New Adventures 2017 - 2018
During a four week period, studio and theatre are in use by emerging artists in residence who are stepping in a new adventure. In that period, the studio is a laboratory for innovation in dance and performance art.
Out of all applications, each year four performance artists and choreographers are selected with their research project for a residency period. They are challenged to return to the core of their artistic practice. Ideas are further explored and deepened and there is space for experimentation and reflection. The period ends with a short public performance, in which the makers connect with the audience and provide context to work.
The selected artists 17/18 are Riccardo Guratti, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen / Andrea Zavala Folache & Keren Rosenberg / Charlie Prince and Jesús de Vega (in coproduction with ICK)
