On the Couch with Ivo Dimchev

Ivo-Dimchev-AAR-On-the-CouchWho is Ivo Dimchev?
A professional amateur. An experimental Scorpio slut. A dirty lullaby.

What would you do differently from what you do now?
I would give less freedom to myself. I have found that I am the most efficient when I have less choices… Yes, so I would limit myself. I’m at my most creative in a small space when I don’t have many options. I would narrow my freedom and my choices.

Who inspires you and why?
I’m usually most inspired by my personal life, by my mistakes and my failures, and the challenges I have in life and in my work. The unexpected always inspires me too.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I would not allow anyone to be a president or political leader / power unless they are able to play two musical instruments, engage in regular anal sex, and have adopted at least two animals and two children.

What is your favorite holiday destination and why?
Not alone under the shower.

When your friends come to town what attractions do you take them to and why?
Into the woods, a gay bar… and to my parent’s house, so my mom can cook for them.

What are you currently reading?
Tinder profiles.

What are you currently listening to?
Chill vibes playlist on Spotify.

What is happiness?
Seeing my elderly parents holding hands during a Sunday walk. Fried zucchini with yogurt and lots of garlic. Lil Nas X sitting on my face. But happiness is not obligatory.

What does the future hold for you?
A duet with Kylie Minogue. And the music video is going to be directed and choreographed by Shaun Parker.

Ivo is the Composer of and Vocalist in KING – a music-dance collaboration between award-winning choreographer Shaun Parker and nine outstanding dancers, which will be presented at the Seymour Centre, as part of Sydney WorldPride from 28 February.
