De Grote Belgische Dansvitrine

Charlotte Vanden Eynde

Charlotte Vanden Eynde is dancer and choreographer. In 1999 she graduated from P.A.R.T.S., the renowned school for contemporary dance by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. Since then she has created quirky choreographies and performances in which the body is central in a very visual and sensitive way. Her early work dealt with topics such as vulnerability, intimacy and femininity. The duets Lijfstof en MAP ME explored the body as matter and leaned close to the visual arts. In the solos I’m Sorry It’s (Not) A Story en Shapeless, she searched for her own dance language, a study that also resulted in various location and improvisation solos. Her latest performance Deceptive Bodies, a duet with Dolores Bouckaert, showed a tranquil study of the theatrical body and was also performed in museum spaces. She was also seen as a dancer in works by, among others, Marc Vanrunxt, Ugo Dehaes and De Roovers. She also provides exercise advice and leads workshops based on her own practice. She is currently preparing a new performance together with double bass player Nicolas Rombouts, in which improvisation plays a central role: Hyphen.
