Black Light theater

Black Light theater

Postby levik » Sun Sep 09, 2007 7:19 pm

Me and a number of friends caught an awesome black light show friday night on esplanade and around 8:00 - 9:00. We were told they are a troupe from Philadelphia, but the name escapes me. They were pretty amazing, and I would love to catch a glimpse of their work if I'm ever in Philly. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

Dammit, you're making me hungry. I've seen the Blacklight Theatre of Prague 3 times. Then when I got to Prague there were about 4 different ones. I was confused. Maybe I should go back for more than 3 days and see them all.

At any rate, done right this is a great art form. I still remember the time I saw them at age ~10, they had this creepy story of some carny killing people, cutting off their hands and enslaving them. Wow.

I hope they come back next year and I find them.

They are ArcheDream for Humankind, and they performed at The Philadelphia Experiment, 7:30 & Esplanade. I believe they (archeDream) are coming back in '08. PEX will definately be back in '08
