black light

black light

black light: see ultraviolet radiation.

The black light puppet is a form of puppetry. The Famous People Players of Toronto are internationally renowned in this field. Blacklight Puppetry capitalizes on the novelty of Ultraviolet lights, or black light. Lighting the staging area with only these specialized lights, the audience can see only the objects that are coated with a special paint. The idea of controlling what the audience sees is a major responsibility of any puppeteer, and blacklight has provided a new way of accomplishing it.
