Prague Black Light Theatre will captivate both you and your children! It is a blend of pantomime, dance, music and a non-verbal theatre production.
In principle, the black light theatre relies on one simple optical illusion called „black box trick.“ This illusion profits from a weakness of human eye. Actors dressed in black cannot be seen against black background, you can only see the actors dressed in colorful costumes. Actors in black use various props and objects. These objects are lit by an ultraviolet light or by moving spotlights. Since the actors are "invisible", the objects seem to be moving on their own and actors in costumes make you believe they can fly!
In the sixties an outstanding Czech artist Jiri Srnec
brought the Czech Black Light Theatre
to its perfection gaining worldwide acclaim for his performances at many international Black Light Theatre festivals. Nowadays, Prague
is a center of the Black Light Theatre
which flourished especially in the 90’s after the so-called Velvet Revolution. Many Czech artists started to further develop Black Light Theatre and promote it on the Czech theatre stages. Here, we offer you tickets for many Prague Black Light Theatre performances.
