Centro Argentino de Teatro Ciego ("Argentine Centre of Blind Theatre") is the only theatre in the world in which all performances are given in complete darkness. It is an inclusive cultural venue where senses are the main characters. It is currently showing 10 plays, including a gourmet show, a play for children and musicals. Darkness allows for a new perception of reality making sight unnecessary. This makes it possible for those with a visual disability to be fully engaged in the conducted activities. Teatro Ciego has hired 70 people, 40% of which is blind or with low vision.

At first I didn't know what to expect. We were taken in line to the restaurant, completely dark. We were seated in large tables side by side our couples with other people in front and at our side (the other side). The plate with the food was already tthere, it is a six course menue all with finger food. While... More

It is a strange and unforgettable visit. The theatre was turned into pitch dark when the show started. The theme of the show on the night was 'Queen'. All we had was on going Queen's music ever for entitle one hours. Not sure why we paid 120 peso to go there instead of at home. :(

We went with our teens , it's one of the best experiences I've been ! Really nice , funny and sometimes with the sensation of being somewhere else ! The front and the entrance of the building are a bit rusty but once the show goes on you enter in an atmosphere that makes you change your mind!! We went... More

We went to "A ciegas gourmet". Food was pretty bad - I dont mind if its a bit cold but it was also not fresh and for the price I paid I thought at least the food should be good. The show was nice and the actors were good but better go if you have a very good Spanish. The... More

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
