Kim Collier is an award-winning director and founding member of Vancouver's Electric Company Theatre, which is pushing the technological envelope once again with its new production, The Full Light of Day.
With 14 cameras rigged to different parts of the set, the play blurs the lines between film and theatre. The cameras capture close-ups of the actors on stage and project them onto walls and curtains to make the audience feel closer to the story, as if they were watching a movie.

Collier joined host Tom Power live in the q studio to talk about how The Full Light of Day brings stage scripts to life in a whole new way.
If you're in Toronto this week, you can catch The Full Light of Day at the Luminato Festival until Thursday, June 13.
