**Black theater** is a unique and fascinating performing art form that originated in China and has become a distinctive attraction of Prague. Let me explain more about this intriguing genre:

1. **What is the Black Theater of Prague?**
    - The **Black Theater of Prague** is based on the inability of the human eye to distinguish black on black. In these plays, the actors are dressed completely in black and perform against a black background. This creates an illusion in which only the elements that the actors wish to show are seen.
    - The black theater performances in Prague are very curious. The characters use **light games** and **phosphorescent objects** that turn on and off to tell the story. In addition, there are **acrobatics** and **background music** that make the experience very enjoyable¹.

2. **How does it work?**
    - Most of the black plays in Prague are **silent**, so you don't need to know Czech to understand the plot. The key is in **optical tricks**, since the human eye cannot distinguish black on black.
    - Actors use precise movements and visual effects to create amazing illusions. Objects seem to float in the air, disappear and transform, all within a magical and dark world.

As for the demands of the actors' work, imagine the precision needed to move on a dark stage, coordinate with visual effects and convey emotions without words. Definitely a challenging but incredibly creative task! 🎭🌟.
