Black Light Theatre (in Czech černé divadlo) or simply Black Theatre, is a theatrical performance style characterized by the use of black box theatre augmented by black light illusion. This form of theatre originated from Asia and can be found in many places around the world. It has become a speciality of Prague, where many theatres use it. Watch a performance by Hilt, the black light theater group of Prague, and see the only independent theater group of the “Black Theater” genre working in the Czech Republic. Using elements of modern dance and pantomime, black light theater uses black curtains, a darkened stage and black (UV) lighting, paired with fluorescent costumes to create intricate illusions. See floating figures and the magic of colors in an infinite space of absolute darkness. The performance uses contemporary modern dance and the magic of shadows, in combination with colorful projections to create a spectacular effect on canvas right before your eyes. Now a worldwide theatrical phenomenon, shadow theater has a long history, dating back to ancient China when it was performed using the light of a candle flame.
