Dydak and Yokoi introduced the notion of shape aspherical compactum. In this paper, we use this notion to obtain a generalization of Kan and Thurston theorem for compacta and pro-homology. As an application, we obtain a characterization of cohomological dimension with coefficients in $\mathbb{Z}$ and $\mathbb{Z}/p$ ($p$ prime) in terms of acyclic maps from a shape aspherical compactum, which improves the theorems of Edwards and Dranishnikov. Furthermore, we obtain the shape version of the theorem and as a consequence we show that every compactum has the stable shape type of a shape aspherical compactum.
