April 4+5 Two more Website Impersonations performances to go!

  • Location:
    New York

You are invited to dance html with me this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday during three new "Website Impersonations" Performances at the Performance Mix Festival at LMCC's Swing Space@Seaport in New York (210 Front Street corner Beekman).

“Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #10 - www.orkut.com” (April 3, 5:30 PM sharp)
“Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #7 - www.msn.com” (April 4, 5:30 PM sharp)
“Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #1 - www.yahoo.com” (April 5, 5:30 PM sharp)

Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited (2006-2008) is a live performance series, which utilizes Web code as choreography. In these performances I am embodying the "character" of a Website - this time I have a cast of performers joining me! - and perform its html code, which is fed in from the Web "on the fly". During each of the performances the source code of the website is immediately translated into ongoing movement instructions, representing different html tags. These instructions derive from the html-movement-library, an online database of user-submitted movement suggestions, and from other parts of the html language. The sound accompanying the performance is another translation of the code - it is interpreted as a musical score. The audience on location is invited to participate in the html dance.
