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.
