ivey wawn

Ivey Wawn (1990) is an independent artist working with contemporary practice in a range of contexts. She is a performer, a collaborator, and makes her own work. Also studying Political Economy at the University of Sydney, her choreographic work is centred around deep consideration and analysis of political systems and resource distribution. Using observations on micro and macro scales, Ivey develops complex systems of transformation, through choreography toward modes of care and consideration that hope to better fit contemporary conditions. Her practice embraces dancing, doing, drawing, thinking, projecting, reproducing, regressing, watching, writing, waiting, mapping, planning, enacting and more. In 2016 Ivey was supported by Australia Council for the Arts to participate in the DanceWEB Scholarship, as part of ImPulsTanz Festival, Vienna. Her work has been presented at, and supported by; CRACK Theatre Festival, AirSpace Projects, Shopfront Contemporary Arts and Performance, ReadyMade Works, ALASKA Projects, Critical Path, DirtyFeet, the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, Ausdance NSW, The NOW now, Underbelly Arts Festival and Bundanon Trust. She has had the pleasure of working with and for local and international artists such as; Angela Goh (AU), Atlanta Eke (AU), Brooke Stamp (AU), Germaine Kruip (BE/NL), Hofesh Shechter (UK), Lizzie Thompson (AU), Louise Trueheart (FR/USA/DE), Martin Del Amo (AU), Rhiannon Newton (AU), Rob McCredie (AU), Scarlett Yu (HK/DE), Tino Sehgal (DE/UK), Xavier Le Roy (FR) among others.
