Institute History

  • 2019 Sundance Film Festival


Inspired by movement traditions such as aikido, yoga, and dance, Embody is a social VR experience that uses visual metaphor and encouragement from teachers and friends to bring about coordinated body movement. Reclaiming the body’s potential inside the digital landscape, this experience is piloted entirely by body movement and position. Users prompt each other, through conversation, mirroring, and environmental channelling, to step together through physical sequences designed to center, balance, extend, and strengthen.

Located at New Frontier at The Ray

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
