Black Light Theater

The 'black box trick'

of using performers dressed in black in a dark playing space has been in use for millenia, starting with the jugglers performing for the emperor in ancient China. Japan developed this technique in its by having puppeteers wear black in order to place complete emphasis on the puppet. In modern theatre the black box trick has been adopted up by Russian director Stanislavski, film director George Melies, and various French avantgarde directors of the 1950s. Among these directors, George Lafaille became an earlier pioneer of Black Light Theatre.Through his influence Czech artists picked up the art form and popularized it in Czechoslovakia and worldwide. By the late 1970s Prague's National Black Light Theatre company was taking the unique Black Light Theatre style on tour throughout Europe. Today several  Czech Black Light Theatre companies show this unusual art form.  We have chosen the best and hope you enjoy it’s surrealistic ambiance.  Have fun!
