Ivey Wawn

Ivey Wawn makes dance-based work for various contexts. Her practice centres on embodiment and on the historic specificity of capitalist social relations, with particular interest in power, control and consent in the organisation of labour. She is committed to dance as a potential form of resistance; to social abstraction and commodification, due to its relative ephemerality and the opportunities it provides for sociality.

Her work has focused on the wage relation, care, microbial reproductive labour, the commodity, and invisibility among other things.

Ivey also sells her labour as a waiter and has been an ongoing student of Political Economy at the University of Sydney since 2016.
