Ivey Wawn

“life action practice” – IW
“something will happen” IW

Ep 36:

Ivey Wawn is a dancer based in Sydney. She has a practice deep with egalitarian structures and questions. We spoke about:

-What is the dance when the body’s not in it?
-the body meeting the dance after the dance exists
-further training vs “un-training”
-definition without exclusion
-equalizing ownership of the event
-wisdom of the crowd (by putting ego aside)
-the practice of everyday life and being disinterested
-virtual reality to supersede performers as the facilitator of vicarious experience
-”gurfing” = Girl Surfing
