It can only be re-performed if it is internally stored between the first and second performances, and since replication may begin with a single individual and an audience, the communication of that which is internally stored from transmitter to receiver is the replication of the meme - which means that the meme itself is the encoded semantic content which is thus transmitted, and the performance is just a medium by which transmission occurs. Performance is the television; the meme is the program.
