The veteran dramatic adviser of the Slovak National Theatre drama and an associate of the director Peter Haspra contemplates in his study on Haspra's perception of a female element in theatrical art. Using the example of his private relation to two prominent Slovak actresses, Viera Strnisková and Sona Valentová, and subsequently through theatre characters Haspra had given to these actresses in his stagings, the author studies inner emotional dimension of these plays. He concludes that Haspra was the type of a director who perceived the dramatic situation emotionally through his 'heart' and only then was looking for rational ways and possibilities how to make them into a peculiar and distinctive form. The author illustrates the method used by Pavol Haspra on various examples of stagings, and is generalizing, that it is mainly spontaneity in relation to a dramatic text and emotional dimensions which often remained concealed from others, that represent typical features of Haspra's position of a dramatic advisor and director.
