About the of principles of Black Theatre

Black Light Theatre as an entertaining non-verbal performance, thus international language works with the effects of the light and colors. The Black Light Theatre is a kind of a team performance, where half of the actors and dancers are clearly visible to audience in their costumes, while the other members of the ensemble are dressed in black velvet, the same color as the curtain is, so you don´t see, how the tricks are performed.

And the performance AFRIKANIA:

"The performance Afrikania tells story about a meeting of a married couple during their exotic holiday with a postman who finds himself unexpectedly in the position of a reception clerk of an abandoned hotel. The story blends together with impressive images of the region Afrikania, full of varied animal kinds to which the newest black theatre technique, non-traditional costumes and professional dancing performances breathe in life. Theatre designing inspired by nature and the projection surrounding the spectator put the finishing touches to the atmosphere of this fantasy world, to which we invite you for a non-traditional trip."
