The study is dealing with a sharp and new trend that occured in the marionette theatre by the beginning of the 90s - by the application of poetics and also the methods of the Czech Study Author's Theatre. Through a brief retrospective, the authoress is returning back to the near and more distant past in order to clarify this phenomenon and continuity related to the heritage of the inter-war avant-garde. The artistic programme of the most combative Study Theatre 'Husa Na Provazku' in Brno was intentionally tying upon significant personalities: the script writer Jiri Mahen, directors J.Honzl a E.F.Burian and also upon the specific Czech poeticism. Since the Slovak marionettists were inspired by the activities of the Study Theatre in Brno, they have also indirectly tied upon the ideas and poetics of avant-garde. Next, the authoress is pointing on positive and qualitatively new impulses brought by the creative application of the new procedures and principles into the environment of the Slovak Marionette Theatre. Lastly, she is contemplating on the fact whether the trend of the author's marionette theatre does not mean drifting away from the path of development continuity of the marionette theatre. She is surprisingly concluding that in reality it is just a natural continuation in the tradition from both sides - a domestic creation, and also in a tradition of genre; it brings about advancement of the best in both aspects.
