  • 2022 Sundance Film Festival


Cie Gilles Jobin (Dance Trail, 2020 Sundance Film Festival) returns to Sundance with this stunning showcase of biodigital live dance performance. Inviting audiences on a mesmerizing journey through cities and sidereal space, Cosmogony elevates the craft of dance choreography as the troupe using the company’s groundbreaking networked motion capture technology — integrates their movement to power avatars through morphing digital 3D environments in real time.

This live digital performance features 3 live dancers who are motion captured in Geneva and projected into 3D narrative environments in real time. A live discussion with the dancers and creative team will follow each performance.

Meet the artists behind all films and projects at the Festival on the Spaceship.

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.
