Black Light Theatre Tips (21)

HILT - black light theatre Phantom - excellent!

We hve seen the show of other black light theatres with my wife, but this group HILT makes absolutely different shows from others. There is much of effects of darkness and UV light but also much of modern dance. The stage changes every few minutes and all you can do is to wonder and wonder how exciting the show is. Great job from this group, really special experience. For those who are visiting Prague it is one of places you have to visit. Be careful, there are more black light theatre productions and all of them are not in the same level of their shows. This ones website is http://hilt-theatre.cz

Black Light Theatre - Reduta

Hi again,

as I wrote review on Reduta club, I wanna to tell you about Reduta theatre. The reason why I makinng this review is simple. I just like this place. It starts with live music. Who don't know what I'm talking about take a look in my other reviews. My point is to write about me experience about things to do in Prague. This time it is theatre. I went to Image theatre and Reduta theatre. So I can compare it. The winner is clear. In Reduta you can feel some history and tradition. The performance was good. It was about traveling Prague in the dream. You cannot be too easy tease. It shows reality of this city:) The name is Magic Trip to Prague or something. Check it out :)

Black Light Theatre- La Fantasticia= horrible

Please do not take your kids here. The show Alice: which is based on the character Alice in Wonderland- get undressed in the second act and parades around the stage for 10 minutes. Not really sure what is the point- but a sad turn of events for a show. Also, the quality of the show is just poor. We asked in advanced if it was ok for kids, and they lied. Poor quality, waste of money and a bad memory for the kids- how sad.

Aspects of Alice in Prague

I highly do not recommend this theater show since not only it is expensive but also offers no value and interest. Also, the characters/actors of the show just keep coming back on the scene with no importance or relevance and just to take time from the show. There are many significant and comprehensive shows with reasonable prices.

Image

To my embarrassment, when I was going to Prague, I thought there is only one black light theater :) In fact I seen several when walking around the city. I have attended the black light theater called Image, it is just near the Staromestske nam. The performance called Black Box and consisted of acrobatic dances and short funny sketches between them. Though there were no warning announced, I wouldnt recommend to attend this performance with kids (during the sketches were shown a lot of drinking, smoking and heroine snort).
Generally, the sketches were funny, with audience involvement, some black humor, but dances looked to me boring.
Price is 480 CZK, still not too expensive option to fill in your evening in Prague.

Black Theatre

The Black Theatre is so odd I find it very difficult to describe or explain, but I will do my best!

The production we saw was part dance, part mime, part comedy, part tragedy. It feels both ancient and modern at the same time - and has a mad inventor, a pigeon on a wire squirting water over the audience, and men in luminous bodysuits dancing. What more can you want?!

Wow (Blacklight Show)

The concept of the Black light show was used in China for the entertainment of Emperors. Japan then used the technique in the 18th century for their puppet theaters. In the 1950’s French puppeteers used this trick. In the 1980’s Czech theaters such as La Fantastika used blacklight throughout the whole performance.

The concept of the black light theater had in the past been guarded by secrecy. What occurs is that actors cover themselves in Black clothing and masks. Against the black background an optical illusion is created where the people in black disappear into the background. Florescent lights make florescent painted objects visible. The objects appear to hover and move independently when the people in black manipulate them. Inanimate objects seem to become actors themselves. Dancers in florescent clothing can with the help of people in black costume, appear to float. In order for everything to work the theater must be completely dark. If light comes in the people in black will be exposed.

The Wow show is a great example of black light theater. The story is that you are in someone else’s dream. We see a story of a man searching fir the child inside of him who is trapped in his fears. The man is accompanied by a dwarf. When he looks into himself he sees different rooms within his soul. In each room he rescues the child from his fears and receives a gift that strengthens him.

Spoiler alert: Do not read if you are going to the show.

In the dream world, there is a room of tears. Water drops go into the audience at that point. There is a room of spiders which we see on stage. Suddenly from the back of the stage spiders pop up and go into the audience. Member who did not expect this, scream. It was pretty cool to have this close up participation. All in all it is something to experience while in Prague.

The best show in Prague

The heavenly music composed by one of Hollywood’s best composers, pre-formed by the philharmonic orchestra of Los Angeles will capture your heart.
The universal story of a child. During the performance spectators themselves become children and must cope with their fear to be able to get to the very end of the performance.
In this magnificent performance which combines traditional techniques with modern pyrotechnics, the magic of the Black light theater (which was created and matured in Czechlands) reaches its peak.
The performance is suitable for people of all ages.

Aspects of Alice Blacklight Theatre Show

Aspects of Alice was an incredible show. I can't really figure out how they did it but with a combination of black light technology and Lewis Carroll type imagination, a great show emerged. The show was adult in fashion but very tasteful and follows, in mime with music, the life of Alice when she reaches the end of innocence. There play contains a spledid mixture of comedy, beauty, and imagination that made this play a howling success. There is also an Pub right next door which serves Absinthe! Wink Wink.

Amazing experience

This typically Czech art form is played out in a varied programme of shows and takes the visitor on a path from total darkness to vivid lights and colours in the extreme.
The intense darkness of black theatre is full of fantasy. Poetic pictures approach from the mysterious and almost indefinite depth of a black cabinet. You cannot see the actors as they are invisible. Then suddenly you can see them, rather well, and almost dangerously close.
Dance forms a major part of the show, which stops in frequent intervals for the dancers to change costumes. During these little breaks, two pantomime actors take charge in a hilarious journey of comedy and audience participation.
Be prepared to be amazed, laugh, get surprised. This is a show not to be missed.

Yellow Submarine in Prague?

Language is no barrier here as the Black Light Theatre is a combination of music, special lighting effects, dance, mime and puppets. The show we saw was set to The Beatles? soundtracks and is a nice alternative to all the classical concerts that are everywhere. A very entertaining evening for about $16.
