Antologia – The Best of the Black Light Theatre
Srnec Theatre

Srnec Theatre (read Srnets Theatre) is the first Black Light Theatre in the world. More than 5 million spectators have already visited our performance. We hold regular international tours. After the foundation of the theatre in 1961 we repeatedly performed in 77 theatre festivals in 68 countries around the world. Srnec Theatre belongs among the most important representatives of the Czech art in the world, which has been acknowledged by the Czech President – on 28th October 2011 Jiří Srnec, the founder of the Black Light Theatre, was awarded the highest state decoration (Credit of the State in the Field of Culture and Arts Medal).
„The experience with the international audience has shown that each thing the human has invented and made may contain humour that may be understood by anybody. The convincingness of the objects coming to life is given by the manipulator’s ac­ting mastery. The critics from all the continents appreciated the invisible actors who made the audience laugh or think by means of the objects. The silent movie era, Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin – these masters are still being admired. Laughter, or smile at least, is needed more now – in the over-engineered period of too many words and few good deeds – than before. “

Antología is the most successful performance of the last years that has been appreciated on all the continents.

Its success can be shown on the following: sold-out square for 15,000 spectators in Campobasso, Italy; the presidents‘ visit on the tour in Nicaragua and El Salvador; or a performance in the NATO Summit in Prague, 2002 – four scenes had been chosen to represent the Czech culture to the presidents and prime ministers of the member states.

The audience is guided through the 51-year history of Srnec Theatre. You may see, for instance, the oldest black light theatre scene „Launderette“ that had been created two years prior to the official foundation of the Srnec Theatre. The scene „ Magician“ allows the invisible performers to show their mastery. The objects appear, change, and vanish again. The audience gets surprised and fascinated. The nearly human behaviour of the four-legged friend of a Western bartender in the scene „Horse“ makes the audience laugh heartily.

More scenes in Antología, such as „Photographer“, „Luggage“, „Prisoner“, „Lamps“ and „Fish“ will entertain and touch the whole family.
