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 Loulou Elisabettie 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.
'Their two first Choreopop songs are simple in design, beautifully elaborated and play very consciously with the ever-so-exhausting, supposed sex appeal of new technology (…) That is promising' - Theaterkrant

In the fall of 2015 he participated in the creation of Macbeth an collaboration between ICK and de Toneelmakerij. With the support of ICK, he created GlitterGods/STIGMA (2017) and Choreopop (2018)
His 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.
