Black Light Theatre of Prague invites you to the fantastic journey to dreams of Dr. Frankenstein!
Black light theatre in Prague is a unique non-verbal spectacle that will blow you away with its beauty and visual artistry.
In the Black Light Theatre's new project you will not only encounter Dr. Frankenstein, but also other well-known characters from the worlds of detective stories and horror.
Slightly absent-minded mad scientist Dr. Frankenstein is obsessed with the idea of creating an artificial man. He invites famous figures from horror and detective tales to help him achieve his goal. He re-awakes the Invisible Man, Sherlock Holmes, the Hound of the Baskervilles, Dracula...
Expericence the unexpected adventures on your journey across Europe at the side of Dr. Frankenstein!
You will find yourself surrounded by dancing jellyfish in the depths of the ocean, see the Eiffel Tower in Paris come to life, your journey across the Alps in traditional dress is accompanied by the yodelling of sprightly highlanders, and Vienna lives up to its reputation as the city of the waltz. In the depths of Transylvania, beneath the castle of Count Dracula, a gipsy woman predicts...success or failure?
The Frankenstein show utilises all the classic elements and imaginative effects of black-light theatre.
Stirring musical score complete the interesting story, which, thanks to its poeticism, exaggeration and humour transcends its origins in horror so much that it is an understandable and fun spectacle for people of all generations.
The creation of Frankenstein
Mary Godwin spent the summer of 1816 with her future husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, on holiday at the home of Lord George Gordon Byron. Rainy days were spent thinking up various horror stories. It was at this time that the student and later scientist Viktor Frankenstein, obsessed with the creation of the perfect human, first saw the light of day. The novel "Frankenstein" was published in 1818, was re-worked many times and is today considered to be one of the founding works of the horror genre. That same rainy summer, and that same place, saw the creation of another classic figure of horror stories - Lord Byron wrote the draft of the story "The Vampyre", which later became the original inspiration for 'vampire' horror stories, e.g. the novel "Dracula". So it was that two classic motifs of horror tales came into existence simultaneously, and completely by chance.
