The Black Light Image Theatre blends black theatre, pantomime and modern dance based on the distinguished Czech tradition in this genre.
The performance “The Best of Image” is a selection from the Image Theatre’s past and current word presenting the best dance and magic compositions and the most successful comic sketches with an original approach to the principles of “black theatre”. Mystification, precise execution of visual tricks, playful authors, compelling performances by actors and dancers and the desire to have fun and entertain the viewer, all is aimed at achieving the goal set: to perform a live theatre for a live audience.
More Info about Image Theatre:
During its 25 years long existence it became an important part of Prague culture, well-known not only to Prague citizens and visitors, but also to audiences abroad. Its creative work moved the development of the genre at the top level. Far from the original, simple form of black theatre, the contemporary one, synthetic and concentrated on clever and quality entertainment, has been reached. The ensemble has developed its own style. It brilliantly uses the technique of black theatre, elements of modern dance, original costumes, mime and non-verbal theatre, as well as contact with the audience. More than 8,000 performed shows and almost two million spectators over twenty-five years is certainly not the only measure of success of the IMAGE Theatre. The essential part remains the same – to keep the audience satisfied.
