A fantasy about sex and power.
At the headquarters of an imaginary festival in Copenhagen, the performance artist Ivo Dimchev discusses with a curator the terms for presenting his latest show. What begins as a hilariously dry and realistic negotiation soon transforms professional protocol into a manifestation of sexual fantasy and power.
Ivo Dimchev is a choreographer and performer who concocts extreme and colorful mixtures of performance art, dance, theater, music, and imagery. Fest is performed by Nicola Schoessler, Annina Machaz, Mirko Feliziani, and Ivo Dimchev.
The performance explores and makes visible the subconscious connections between power and desire in professional relationships. Fest is an absolute fiction and is not based on any real professional experience. Let’s say it’s inspired by reality . . . but mostly is inspired by Dimchev’s guilty love for theater in its more “conventional” setting.
