The author maps the endeavours of the East Slovakian theatre-makers to entertain their audiences in an unconventional theatre space. He makes mention of historic roots and motives underlying the attempts of theatre professionals to expand the offer of the theatrical productions by performances given in less formal and less convention-friendly premises. In the late of the 20th century, theatre professionals in Kosice, and particularly in Presov, made some attempts to change the conventional approach to seeking a project suitable for an unconventional theatre space; this initiative was first launched in the 1970s. This ambition was taken up and accomplished by director Jozef Prazmari together with the stage designer Stefan Hudak in HOP Theatre Studio; particular credit, however, should be given to the guest director Peter Scherhaufer and his project 'Kemu ce treba' (Who Needs You) and the production 'Kde lezi nasa bieda' (Where Our Misery Lies) at Jonas Zaborsky Theatre, Presov.
