A magnificent, large-scale interactive installation standing on Swede Alley, Park City, The Treachery of Sanctuary is an experience of birth, death, and transfiguration that uses projections of the participants’ own bodies. The triptych takes your shadow through a profound journey of death, dissolution, and rebirth that is viscerally connected to experiencing the creative process.

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.
