Summary/Abstract: In his general overview,the author of this study summarizes the specifics of poetics of Slovac award winning theatre director Andrew Spišák (1964) in the context of expressive modalities of his work as well as distinctive features of his theatrical and directorial work. The holistic approach to Spišák’s directorial work allows the author to some extent generalize certain characteristic features of the artist’s work although the study is not a full portrait of the director O. Spišák. On the basis of short analyses of selected productions,the author points to the apparently dominant constructional and compositional elements of his stage work. Gradually, he specifically identifies the means used by the director to create a theatrical designatum, which undoubtedly become the basis for unique creation of particular parameters of receptions, effects on the viewer.
