Direction is nothing but an artistic creation in specific time and space and by means of time–space parameters.

Direction of puppets means to carry out an absolute direction with a director as a demiurge and his play as a metaphysical magic.

Each new direction is a true search for new principles of the time and space parameters creation. Direction always produces new time and new space sui generis. Hence, it is usually said that direction is a generic phenomenon that is always re–born. Re–birth of a director is shown within the score of a play, through the actor's body, stage space, spectator's time and his perception of the time–space.


The artistic time and space of a direction is born out of time and space and the very same applies to the playwright when he written his play or to the actor when his real being acts within given time–space. Hence, director creates his peace of art out of real time and space obeying the rules and laws of the time–space generic.

In brief, art in general, just like life itself, is the result of time and space. That is why it can be stated that direction really coincides with principles of creative nature, of life itself, of universe.
