The first black light theatre - Srnec Black Light Theatre is located in the Savarin Palace. 

The Savarin Palace, built in the 18th century by K. I. Dientzenhofer and A. Lurago, has an impressive history of culture, dance and music. The palace is protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic.
Black Light Theatre of Jiří 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. Jiří 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.
