Lux Aeterna Theatre
Lux Aeterna Theatre: a theatre without a stage and therefore without borders.
Lux Aeterna speaks a universal language by combining color, light characters, music sounds in a single artistic context. A truly avan-garde theatre which creates art of the future today, generates a new and unique artistic product.
Lux Aeterna Theatre has been in operation as an independent artistic entity since 1982 remaining so far a unique theatre of such a genre. The dome of planetarium, a rear-screen, a panorama-screen, an opera backdrop, a multiplex cinema screen acts as a stage for the theatre.
The Theatre unfailingly keeps to its fundamental rule – Artistic Sound and Artistic Light make up an ideal material for the creation of an integral work of art – and intends to do so in future. Its creed lies in the following: opening up a new world of feelings. These feelings can hardly, if at all, be evoked by any other means of arts known today. By the way, its performances demonstrate beneficial effects as well as they enable visitors to plunge into special colour and sound surroundings or roll over colour and sound waves.
Today Lux Aeterna Theatre International actively demonstrates its credo - Science, latter-day Technology and Art fusion - in practice.
