Pavol Haspra occupies a prominent place in the overview of the Slovak admirers of Kovacevic's dramatics - he approached this author three times and all three encounters were realized at the Slovak National Theatre scene in Bratislava: just three years after 'Zberné stredisko' (The Gathering place) had been first performed in Belgrade, Haspra introduced this author also to the Slovak cultural community. In 1992 when the territory of former Yougoslavia was raging with a blood war conflict, and Kovacevic was in a position of a dissident wandering between Budapest and Belgrade, Haspra rehearsed his 'Spalena vecera' (Burnt Dinner). Like a silent testament and a smiling farewell wave purpotted the last encounter of these two creators in the project 'Doktor Suster' (Doctor Schuster) from 2002. Three of Haspra´s stagings are analyzed by the director and aesthetitian Michal Babiak.
