The author focused on that part of theatrical activities which stand in opposition to, or, which are, in fact, an open protest against the conventional theatre. Various manifestations of these activities are covered by the term of alternative theatre. These theatrical manifestations would give prominence to sensations, or the fragments of sensations, rather than to a dramatic plot. They express the inner disposition of their architects, i.e. sensations which respond to the impulses of dynamic, internally controversial, and, oft-times, brutal and vulgar reality. As a rule, they are expressed as opposition to the reality experienced, as disenchantment, defiance, apathy, helplessness, and a desperate seeking of the ways out. The author contemplates and names signs which are peculiar to the alternative theatre within the context of production practice, which makes it distinct from the conventional theatre and place it in modern, experimental and ever-seeking theatrical stream. The starting point is the characteristics and analysis of several concrete theatrical national and international activities of recent years.
