Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


Part theatre, part, this groundbreaking play is a feature-length livestream game telecast, whose central characters, Spyda and Lynxa, are avatars powered by the VR headset and mocap suit worn by stage actors who game the sprawling virtual world fresh with each performance. Set in a post–climate change world raging with late-capitalist rebellion and excess, Anti-Gone is a quest for happiness in the sunken city, where the characters shop, score drugs, and hotbox cinema.

This exhibition is housed at the Biodigital Theatre at New Frontier Central.

Sun. 1/26–Tue. 1/28, Thu. 1/30: 5:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m.

— S.F.

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.
