Black Light Theatre TaFantastika in Prague and its performance Aspects of...

Black Light Theatre TaFantastika in Prague and its performance Aspects of Alice is one of the oldest black light performances, played for almost 30 years. Traditional Czech theatrical technique with beautiful music from Smetana and others will tell you a story about Lewis Carrol, the author of Alice in Wonderland, and his Alice. Two times every day - at 7PM and 9:30 PM. This show is not the story of Alice in the Wonderland, it's about what's behind the story and author's life. We have a NEW CAFE - opened every day from 1PM to 11PM, offering different variations of coffe, fresh tea, alcoholic and soft drinks, healthy snacks (like Raw ice-cream for example) and popular hot chocolate! Good prices and LIVE MUSIC every day!

Was quite excited about this new concept of black light theatre and the approach is certainly a novel one. However the story and the execution left much to be desired. Aspects of Alice as the title and the promotion of the show make it seem like a fantasy suitable for children and the young at heart but there are some... More

We booked in for the light show not knowing what to expect. Very good to watch but a little underwhelming at the same time. Incredibly talented light/street artists who worked at a phenomenal speed. The performance for 500 kc was 35 mins followed by 25 mins of interactive discussion and having the chance to try out the equipment on stage.... More

If you had a man dressed from head to foot in black, except for a pair of white gloves, then, if the stage lighting was correct, all you'd see was his disembodied hands. This basis is used for all sorts of novelties, and only Prague has them, in two separate theatres. A talented and acrobatic cast put this to lively... More

Expressed my Hong Konger identity and got a 200kc off discount from the grey-haired uncle here 😁 He was so enthusiastic and made me a unexpectedly wondrous night presented with Aspects of Alice, a black-light drama show. Light effects extensively interact with the black background have stayed in my mind. The theme song and Alice's performance over the sky of... More

Show was ok. Seems like a middle school play. No speaking parts or singing. It is amazing the work and coordination their team puts on. Hope they grow on this idea.

The concept is very cool, but the execution needs to be improved. Also, there's not an actual story and the show consists in several diferentes scenes. At the end, they explained the 'tricks' with help from the audience and that was very funny.

The theatre is very close to Charles bridge. It has a nice foyer with a bar for drinks in the interval. We saw the production 'Aspects of Alice' which was great fun with some clever artistry. At the end, there was a short workshop explaining some of the tricks and a couple of children were invited to try it out.... More

It was really really bad. Over-priced, amateur and short duration. A Huge disappointment. We could even see the men wearing black clothes behind....... We thought it would be a good way to spend our evening but boy we were wrong.......

Aspects of Alice is very hard to describe, but I will try my best! It is a surreal play about Lewis Carroll’s relationship to Alice (the real one as well as the imaginary one) – rather than Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The action of the play takes place against a black backdrop, which allows for many eye-popping effects including levitation!... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
