Charlotte Vanden Eynde is a Belgian dancer, choreographer, actress and video artist.
In 1999, she graduated at P.A.R.T.S., the Brussels based school for contemporary dance headed by choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. Since 1997, she has been creating highly personal choreographies and performances, focusing on the body with a strong sculptural and imaginative sensibility.
Besides her work as a choreographer, she is working in theatre and film as a dancer and actress.
Since 2004, she is also creating videos and video installations, always starting from the expressive possibilities of the body.

'Met hun sobere aanpak hekelen Vanden Eynde en Bouckaert aangrijpend de dwang van de blik die nog steeds vooral op vrouwen rust. De theatraliteit van hun verstilde poses blijkt geen wet van het theater alleen, maar van onze samenleving waarin we willens nillens allemaal een rolletje spelen.' *** De Standaard
Starting from a shared fascination with the body, Vanden Eynde and Bouckaert put on view the ambigeous play of representation and perception of the theatrical body. Therefor they explored the phenomenon hysteria. They closely observed and manipulated their own and each other's body, setting out in search of a common physical language related to both dance and the visual arts. By exposing themselves in an accumulation of physical transformations, a highly personal iconography is being (dis)played.
