Welcome to the Black Light Theatre Metro and enjoy its poetics, humor and dance!

Frantisek Kratochvil - the founder of the Metro Theatre - presented The Cartoon Theatre in 1975 and since then it has entertained audiences both home and abroad. In 2002, the Cartoon Theatre of Frantisek Kratochvil (cofounder of black light theatre) moved from Reduta to the Metro Theatre and thus began its next stage under the name of the Black Light Theatre METRO. At the same time Frantisek Kratochvil started to write a new performance, this time in a close collaboration on direction, screenwriting and choreography with Michal Urban, the director of the theatre. The results of this collaboration are one of the most successful black light theatre performances in Prague "LIFE IS LIFE" and "DEJA VU".

The theatre founder's approach combines several principles of black theatre into one non-verbal performance. It is a mixture of basic three-dimensional black light theatre, comedy, dance and pantomime. Contemporary dance alternates with classical ballet.
Black Light Theatre METRO is the only one that reveals some of its secrets. Each performance is followed by a short workshop during which viewers can see technology of some black light theatre effects. Both performances are partly interactive and during the workshop the spectators can try to act in the blacklight theatre.
