Starting from purely physical, formal and dynamic qualities of movement, in an intimate relationship with the music, in her dance solo 'Shapeless' choreographer Charlotte Vanden Eynde reaches the very limits of abstraction to give us a work from which emotion is never absent. The body being her point of departure, she is looking for a kind of ‘shapelessness’, for a state of chaos and elusiveness, for a ‘shape without a shape’.

‘Charlotte Vande Eynde is dancing an impressive dance solo, ranging between stilled and highly explosive moments. Her movements are sober, but the dance phrases she creates with them are inventive, virtuoso and sparkling.’ - ***
