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.
Within the framework of the exhibition La chaleur de l'usure, Charlotte Vanden Eynde made the performance Corps Partagé for 15 students of the dance/art education ISAC (part of the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles). The performance takes place at the opening of the exhibition on Thursday 6 November at 20:00 in De Markten in Brussels.
New version 'Deceptive Bodies'
Shown for the first time in STUK, Leuven (B) the 16th of October 2014 at 20:30.
'Deceptive Bodies' is a collaboration between Charlotte Vanden Eynde and actress/visual artist Dolores Bouckaert. Starting from a shared fascination with the body, they 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.
