It could've been fun if it were 15min long but it becomes repetitive and boring after a while. I haven't seen performances in other theaters, may be they are more interesting.

Basically, black light theatre is a one-trick pony. It needs to be clever and creative to hold visitor's interest. I don't think this particular show does it well.

It's not clear who is the intended audience. The first half would be fun for young kids but the second half is adult in nature.

The best part is the last few minutes when they show how black light theater works.

My recommendation - try a performance in another theater.

The older man who promotes the show on the street outside the venue works hard to capture passer-by interest. My wife enjoyed the show because it was different and I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation (once I stopped trying to figure out how the show was technically done). And, I was rewarded at the end of the presentation when it was revealed to the audience --and in a humorous way, how the 'behind-the-scenes' support work is done. This show is recommended if you want to spend an hour or so watching a fantasy unfold involving people, props and black light!

It's an interesting hour with a twist of an interactive session at the end but it is overpriced for what it is and there are other companies offering similar, so shop carefully.

Ta Fantastika is a genuine example of traditional black theatre, which goes back even to ancient China. Yet modern Czech black theatre is strongly connected to one of the most influental and innovative stage designers of the 20th century Josef Svoboda, and many others, who were involved in the development of this phenomena. Most famous example being the victorious Czechoslovak pavilion at the Expo in 1956 in Brussels. Ta Fantastika follows this tradition with the mood of the golden days of Black Theatre in Prague. Its shows are connected either to the well known Prague stories and places, like in the "Aspects of Alice", or with the fundamental principles of black theatre and visual site in the "Light Art Show".

Aspects of Alice was wonderful!
It was beautifully artistic and a thrilling experience to be a part of. I was new to the idea of black light theatre and was hesitant to spend my money on the show (it was not expensive, but I am a student). I am so glad I did! It was such a treat; a live show, a movie, a story, an interactive experience, and just a beautiful masterpiece.
During the show there is the opportunity to fly on the flying machine. Unfortunately, I was in the back and could not be seen to be picked. However, after the show I mentioned how curious I was about the flying machine. One man, I do not remember his name but he was tall and very friendly, he took me backstage and hooked me up to the machine. The entire cast came out to say hello to me and were very welcoming. The stage crew even suited up again to hoist me into the air! It was so fun!! It's an experience I will never forget!
Go to this show! Anyone from age 0-100 will enjoy this show!
