Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited  is  a Live Performance Series choreographed by Web code.
In the performance of  facebook.com  on March 3, 2009, three dancers, the audience, and the artist shaped together the course of the performance.
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.
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.
