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. « less

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.

I read an article in National Georgraphic that said it had a free show on Sundays, but that you have to pick up the free tickets on Saturday. The article was correct. There was a long line waiting for tours, avoid the lines and go to box office line inside. Get free tickets. The show we saw was a voilinist... More

The food wasn´t something too impressive but it was fine, the important is the whole experience ...it was indescriptible. Friendly staff, we didn´t understand everything they said in spanish, but it you get the context your imagination will do the rest of the work.

We saw the a child story, it last not more than 40 min. The only potential cause to recommend this show is that some of the players are really talented actors, and also blind people. Others not too much talents, even they can see normally. Most part of the show elapses on full darkness, they use a few odors deodorant... More

Placed in The Abasto neighborhood this is something different to see. Is an experience in which you ll have to open your senses to perceive everything... The actors and the actresses are really good!

A really unique experience. I could easily see this being in any big US city. I don't want to add any spoilers here about what happens but we were very impressed with the creativity in describing scenarios without the use of sight. Would not recommend if you don't speak fluent spanish. Beware that a group of teenagers may ruin the... More

One of the best shows I ever assisted! Fantastic way to feel the entire show, since you enter to the place you can't see. But you can feel, smell and listen everything. It's really amazing!
