About

Bring your swimsuit to the pool at Festival Headquarters, where an underwater VR headset and snorkel awaits to transport you aboard a voyage from Earth to the moon. Sutu’s viscerally crafted colorscape combines with archival recordings of the Apollo 11 mission to create this magic trick that takes you on an extraordinary journey within—floating in the water with VR goggles becomes a space simulation as the absence of gravity immerses all the senses.

Open to credential holders Sat. 1/25–Thu. 1/30, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. at Festival Headquarters (Sheraton Park City, 1895 Sidewinder Dr.)
Bring your swimsuit; towels available on-site.
