"He who asks too much, learns too much..."
Can light be captured? You can't meet the past. But the sun is still shining, and when it's bright, it awakens the past.


Yellow Darkness delves into a time and space where birth, life and a death have no causality. Light becomes a musical instrument that takes us to unknown worlds. The author is an orphaned figure in a space created by an interactive play of laser rays.


Petr Nikl (1960) – Artist, writer, illustrator, musician and performer. Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. He is a founding member of the Tvrdohlaví group and received the Jindřich Chaloupecký Prize for young artists in 1995. Nikl has been collaborating with the Archa Theatre since 1994, when he created the scenography and costumes for the first project of the Opera La Serra. In the following years, he presented his solo performances and collaborated with Kristýna Lhotáková and Ladislav Soukup on the performance Dance of Toys, and with Jana Svobodová on the projects Slunovrat, Mirror, Mirror and Worn Dreams. His recent project Yellow Darkness evolved as a continuation of his previous play – the black and white melodrama I Am Your Bunny. The performance was created as a co-production with the Archa Theatre, where it has been presented in various incarnations since 2011.
