Choreographer & Modern Dancer


After a career as a dancer –  with choreographers such as Wim Vandekeybus, Roberto Olivan, Carmelo Fernandez and Sam Louwyck –  Rasmus Ölme founded his group REFUG in 2001. He produced and toured several works around Europe until 2008 as he started his PhD in choreography at DOCH/Uniarts (SE). In 2014 he succesfully defended his thesis “From Model to Module – a move towards generative choreography”. During that time he made a series of presentations of the practical choreographical research under the name MODUL 1-6. Since Jan 2015 he is the head of the Dance and Choreography education at the National Danish School of Performing Arts in Copenhagen. He is currently conducting a research, financed by the Danish Ministry of Culrure, on the materiality of movement.
