The predecessor of the Black Light Theatre Metro, Cartoon Theatre, was first presented to viewers in March 17th 1975 by the performance "Clown", written by Frantisek Kratochvil and Vladimir Cabalka. The theme of the play was the structure of human relations, the eternal problem I – You; which reflects in its form the typical relationship between a man and a woman.
The Theatre of Frantisek Kratochvil continued on the stage of Prague Reduta in other productions. A performance "Anatomy of the Kiss" was written in 1991, based on the previous play "Clown".
It was necessary to make a thorough study of the jumbled assortement of women and their souls before it was possible to give a responsible performance of the fruits of their “research“. This Black Light Theatre work confirms a time – honoured truth: “Cherchez la femme“, or “behind everything, you will find a woman“, it affords the viewer a glipmse into the most hidden depths of men´s and women´s soul, and to our surprise we discover old but eternal thruths and facts.
A performance "Miss Sony" was written in 1995. František Kratochvíl ponders the creeping force of television, which is capable of seizing an individual to the extent where he can no longer actively enjoy his own life. The author encourages everybody to live a real and dynamic life. He did it by means of a unique presentation, in a creative and funny way with slightly erotic elements.
The Black Light Theatre performance called "Quo Vadis" (1999) continues the tradition of successful theatrical performances such as "Anatomy of the Kiss" and "Miss Sony". From the creation of the world right to the end of a milenium, through the poetic, pure, hectic and polluted world, the guides of this humorous black theatre performance are the figures of an angel and a devil. A classic confrontation between good and evil, humour and joyous erotic images and the author himself, Frantisek Kratochvil, became all guarantees of great entertainment.
