Jesús de Vega
At Dansmakers since 2017
Jesus de Vega (SP) is a choreographer and performer born in the Canary Islands, Spain. His dance career began in 1993, having worked with companies and choreographers such as Emio Greco/PC, Galili Dance, Iceland Dance Company, Metros, Stephen Shropshire, André Gingras, Sylvain Emard and Vaclav Kunes amongst others.
He began working as a dance maker in 2008 and his work has since toured across Holland and has been presented at dutch theatres and dance festivals (Mundial, Nazomerfestivaal, Boulevard Festival and the Nederlandse Dansdagen) and internationally in Istanbul and the U.K.
In 2012 - 2013 De Vega participated in Spazio, a European programme for dance makers, and is currently a guest artist at ICKamsterdam.
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.
Extremes, and a way to find balance between them, play an important role in his work; in that sense, he uses his artistic platform to open up a dialogue about human condition.
