Talk about the dark arts!

On March 1, Park Slope’s Brooklyn Lyceum will be plunged into near-darkness as 50 Brooklyn-based artists exhibit and perform circus acts, music, visual arts and more throughout the quirky bathhouse-turned-event space. But don’t expect any spotlights to illuminate the shows — instead, audience members will each be issued a flashlight to explore the experimental event on their own.

“The aesthetic of the night is quite dark and raw to reflect the cavernous space of Brooklyn Lyceum,” said Isaac Bush, artistic director of the Circle Theater of New York, which is organizing the event.

The theater collective created the event — dubbed a “Live Art Market,” although nothing at the show will be for sale — to give alternative artists in the borough a new platform for their work.
