Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a Live
Performance Series choreographed by Web code.
In the performance of
live.com on June 6, 2009, two dancers, two performers, and the audience, joined me to shape together the course of the show.
The source code of the website - its HTML tags - were interpreted live on stage into new dance movements, which were immediately translated into text-based
descriptions and then stored online into the (text-based) html-movement-library.
This information was reused on stage as new instruction material. As the data performance
progressed, more html-movements were developed, stored and altered by the participants, and then recycled yet anew...
The inclusion of the html-movement-library on stage enabled a simultaneous exchange of instruction and performance, data and movement input and output, and a continuous transfer between Web and body.
