Dance Trail

Director: Gilles Jobin

Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


The miniature and megagiant dancers in Gilles Jobin’s VR_I (2018 Sundance Film Festival) break out of the headset to dance in the streets and on top of buildings, across snowy fields, and in the palm of your hand. Dance Trail is an AR app for smartphones that lets audiences unlock surreal dance performances staged in various Festival sites. You can also place dancers anywhere you want and video capture them to share on social networks.

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.
