Can you recreate the experience of immersive theatre on film?

As the new film of Sound and Fury's Kursk reveals, capturing live theatre on video is tough – even more so when it's immersive, interactive or promenade

Theatre on film? Better than nothing, is my take. If you can't see a show in person, watching a recording of a production is a pretty decent second-best. It will, inevitably, lack all the trappings of the live event – both temporal and spatial – but at least you get a sense of the performance as it might have been. In fact, thanks to multiple cameras and zoom lenses, filming technique can allow an audience a better sense of what happens onstage, even if it can't capture the full experience.

But what about those forms of theatre where the liveness isn't simply brilliant to have, but entirely integral? Sure, a camera and microphone can stand in for our eyes and ears – but how do you »
