Black Light Theatre of Jiri Srnec was founded in 1961 as one of then emerging avant-garde theaters and from the very beginnig, it has attracted attention by remarkable artistic qualities. Creative use of a simple trick, the so-called "black cabinet" in which actors wear black so that from the perspective of the viewer they are not seen against the black background, make the props and objects become alive. Jiri Srnec Black Light Theatre belongs, thanks to the fresh inventiveness, distinctive poetics and sovereign mastering of the black light theatre tricks, among the best black theaters in the world.
