Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #6 - www . wikipedia . org
A new part of the performance/installation series by Ursula Endlicher.
The Code=The Choreography
Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a ten-part live performance series, which utilizes Web code as choreography. In the performance of wikipedia on December 11 five dancers, the audience, and the artist will shape together the course of the performance.
The source code of the website - its HTML tags - are interpreted live on stage into new dance movements, which are immediately translated into text-based descriptions and then stored online into the html-movement-library. This information is reused on stage as new instruction material. As the data performance progresses, more html-movements are developed, stored and altered by the participants.
The inclusion of the html-movement-library on stage enables a simultaneous exchange of instruction and performance, data and movement input and output equally, and a continuous transfer between Web and body.
