EXPERIMENTAL CHOREOGRAPHIC RESIDENCY 2019
PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE & CRITICAL PATH
Performance Space and Critical Path’s Experimental Choreographic Residency supports the development of innovative, bold and experimental approaches to choreography.
Established in 2016, the residency supports an artist or collaboration to spend three weeks developing their experimental choreographic practice with financial, production, technical and creative support from both organisations.
Previously the residency has supported Justin Shoulder, Atlanta Eke, Rajni Shah, Victoria Hunt and Alex Tálamo.

As part of the Experimental Choreographic Residency Ivey will undertake the development of In Perpetuity; a work in progress investigating the demands of capital on bodies, human and non-human. Ivey is interested in the way that wage labour fractures and abstracts time, giving rise to a speculative state where pasts, presents and futures are perpetually rebalanced and revised to maximise monetary returns.
In her residency Ivey will be looking to develop a system of sensual stimulants through scent, sound, vision and physical inputs designed to thicken the present in an attempt at liberating bodily labour and finding new value in sensation, joy and magic. Working with collaborators Ellen Davies, Megan Payne, Daniel Jenatsch and Rohan Willard, Ivey will continue developing methodological approaches for integrating systems, stimuli and data into choreographic processes.
Ivey Wawn makes dance-based work for various contexts, drawing poetics from economic and microbial systems to develop choreography for the human scale. She works extensively as a performer and collaborator, primarily between Sydney and Melbourne but also internationally. She also sells her labour as a waiter in between projects and is a current student of Political Economy at the University of Sydney.
Her work, Greyness and Infinity (2017), was developed and presented in Underbelly Arts Festival and presented at RMIT Design Hub in 2018 with the support of Liquid Architecture. Adventure Dances (2016) was made with support from DirtyFeet, and her colour dances (Spectral) have been shown at various galleries and art events in Sydney between 2016 and 2018. She also has an ongoing collaborative project with visual artist, Mark Mailler called Consejos de Farez, which was supported by Critical Path and has been presented at First Draft Gallery (Sydney). She also has had extensive support in research from Critical Path, MAAS and City of Sydney among others in Australia and internationally.
