︎︎︎ About


Charlotte Gillain has had a great fascination for making, moving and performing from an early age. After a short visit to the Bachelor of Dance in Education at ArtEZ, she graduated from the Mime School Amsterdam in 2021. There she was not only able to develop her movement quality and her performance skills, but she also became a passionate maker. Here she could finally combine her fascination for playing, moving and making. As a maker, she is intrigued by transformation and has a great predilection for the existential. After graduating she’s developed a love for interdisciplinary work and has experience with digital technologies such as: deepfake, light scanning, motion capture,..etc. As a mimer, the body is always a fundamental element to her work wether it’s more digital or performative. 

Charlotte is originally from Kalmthout (a small village next to Antwerp), but has been living in Amsterdam for a number of years. She would like to build a bridge between the Dutch mime and the Belgian theater field. In recent years she has collaborated or performed with makers such as: Het Houten Huis, Davy Pieters, Francesca Lazzeri, Gerben Vaillant, Schippers&VanGucht, Fabian Santarciel de la Quintana and Boogaerdt/Vanderschoot..
