Black Light Theatre


Black light theatre is a specialty of Prague. It is a world of illusory creations and hidden secrets, with the story related visually through a highly charged mix of theatrical elements.

While every black light show is different, each includes many of the following: dynamic dance routines, colourfully dressed mime artists, ballet, singers, puppets, animated film, state-of-the-art visual effects and dramatic sounds. There is a strong emotional edge to performances, with comedic touches.

Shows are suitable for adults and children of all ages.

Shows are suitable for adults and children of all ages.
