The black light theatre genre is a unique form of stage performance that takes place in complete darkness. In this type of show, only certain parts of the costumes and stage props glow against a black background, creating a mesmerizing visual effect. Dancers and objects appear to be flying, with the actors behind them covered in black suits from head to toe, adding to the illusion.
