In honour of the 150th anniversary of the reunification of Italy, Canadian Stage hosted Spotlight.Italy, that ran from March 15 - 26, 2011. This two-week festival featured productions by innovative Italian companies and an abundance of artistic events, classes and experiences that honour modern Italian culture and art. Including Internationally acclaimed Italian artist BRUNO BILLIO who used light to transform the Canadian Stage Company's Berkeley location for Spotlight on Italy. At once an installation artist, a sculptor, and a designer, BILLIO's centrepiece was an 18' tall Black and Yellow Tower.
