Description: The “Blind Theater” or “Theater in the darkness” is a new way of feeling...
The “Blind Theater” or “Theater in the darkness” is a new way of feeling what is real. By being immersed in a space without light, people are forced to perceive what is real by relying on their other, less exercised senses. This style of immersing people into complete pitch black darkness offers a more specific development of the sensual capabilities of each individual and encourages an open minded and empathetic response. The darkness excites the senses and works to destroy the preconceived notions of how we see things and replace it with them with how we imagine them. . This is not a theater of blind actors nor is it for the blind, but rather it is for everyone that is open to the development of human potential and social inclusion. In the Blind Theater we hope to erase the differences between people, apparent differences that are only perceived with sight. Our shows are presented in total darkness which permit people with visual handicaps to work in an environment where the use of sight doesn’t exist, nor does their disabilities.

The "blind theatre group" offers different shows. One of them even includes a gourmet experience with a blind dinner. In my personal case, I chose to start with a simple play. Anxiety. Curiosity. Great expectations. Those were my mixed feelings as the time for the show was drawing near. The initial moments in total darkness were at first puzzling but... More

Amazing and unique. First time I've been to a "blind theatre" and I loved it, would definitely go to another show. All darkness, but full of sensations... smell, sound... enhance your senses and experience things from a different angle.

I loved this. You get to eat dinner while in complete darkness. While the first few minutes of total darkness can be unnerving, eventually you start to feel your other senses become heightened. The theatric play that goes with the dinner was also very interesting. Must "see".

The show is very well prepared and unusual for people with sight. It is amazing how much our other senses can gather when we cannot see anything. It creates a better understanding of how much a person without sight can feel of their surroundings . Great show and a superb experience, it should be seen by all people.

It's a play performed completely in the dark. They have many types of plays and all of them performed in Spanish. If you do not dominate it or somewhat know a little, I recommend the Ciegas Gourmet which is a theatrical presentation with wine and dinner included. Take a look back at the old Buenos Aires and developing stories with... More

If you want to live and enjoy a comedy or drama spectacle this is your place... you are going to feel everything... however you aren't going to see nothing! So it's a place for sensitive people with a lot of imagination!

This is a very new experience. Attention is excellent, food is just ok but it is worst it. I can't tell you a lot because the best is to expirience yourself. All your sense will be wake!

A unique experience in the absolute darkness feeling, smelling and listening a theatre show. You can even try having dinner in the darkness.

Do not miss this place and if you are in town for an opera make sure you see and hear it. I am not an opera fan but this setting would make enduring it well worth the time...and my partner loves the opera.

I haven't personally gone here but I know someone who did, and they said it was a great show, and also that when the lights came back on there were a lot of people who had somehow changed places. The tables were rocking a little at one point he said.
