What is Black Light Theatre?

The Black Light Theatre is a unique spectacle that will blow you away with its beauty, visual artistry and non-verbal intelligibility.

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 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!
