>Digression:
I was at an international theatre festival in Baltimore in the early
1970's (TNT - The New Theatre).
One performance was totally in the dark. The audience had to listen.
No one fell asleep, or admitted to it.

It would be a great opportunity for puppet artists to do a candlelight
only performance. Campfire puppetry in parks.
Torch lit puppet procession. Shadow puppetry with fire light. etc.

I've seen a show excerpt where small tea lights were the only light sources 
for a while.
Very nice! Like a performer whispering forces people to listen more, a small 
light forces to see more.
