Búi Rouch is a Faroese contemporary dancer, performer, choreographer and teacher based in Berlin. He studied acting in London, dance-theatre at Akademiet in Copenhagen as well as contemporary dance at Iwanson International in Munich. Following his graduation, he was an active member in and outside of the Munich dance scene for many years, working and collaborating with artists, directors and choreographers such as Katja Wachter, Ersan Montag, Romeo Castellucci, Cindy van Acker, Daphna Horenczyk, Katrin Schafitel, Cristina D’Alberto, Funda Gül Özcan, Ceren Oran and many others. He has also danced and performed with companies such as Det Ferøsche Compagnie and the companies of Johanna Richter, Johannes Härtl and Tomer Zirkilevich.
For many years, the cross-over field between movement, sound composition, text and light, is of special interest as a creator and collaborator. His own creations and co-creations have been performed at festivals such as The Nordic Performing Arts Festival, HIER =JETZT, Berlin Performing Arts Festival and Regensburger Tanztage. In the recent years, non-human physiology, the digital revolution and violence inscribed into bodies from neoliberal capitalism have started to play an increasing role in his interest field and choreographic language.
From 2018 – 2020, Búi was a faculty teacher at Iwanson International School of Contemporary Dance, teaching improvisation, composition and leading creative processes. Since spring 2019, he is also a guest teacher at the Otto Falkenberg acting and directing school in Munich, teaching contemporary dance and improvisation for actors.
