A (dance) performance is always associated with the experience of passing. Although caught in the moment, there are attempts to eternalise it by way of different postproduction responses and records and turn it into a 'sellable good'. In his performance Fest, Ivo Dimchev metaphorically and literally depicts phallic-vaginal relations between the artist, programme head, technician and critic, thus revealing the vulgarity of the process of buying performances. Selling and researching performances is based on our memories. In Frankfurt, a symposium was organised to the theme of digitalisation of the dancing body, entitled Motion Bank. An accurate record of movement leads to democratisation, which supports a relaxed dialogue between different artistic practices, but at the same time uniforms the dancer's body and obscures his individual dimension, though it also contributes to direct learning of known repertoires.
