Abstract: The concept of deconstruction is a popular category of contemporary theatre theory. On the one hand, it denominates a technical aspect of contemporary theatre practice: a decomposition, demolition of the unity of the existing pattern (e.g. the unity of a dramatic text or dramatic character). On the other hand, in the post-structural sense of this concept, the deconstruction is an artistic practice that seeks to expose deep-seated contradictions in a work (dramatic text or character) and to expose the plurality of its meaning. This article analyses the deconstructive mode of the representation of a dramatic character which becomes visible in contemporary acting practice. The deconstruction of the dramatic character means that an actor demolishes the unity of a characterís form and content and opens a classic character up to a variety of interpretations. Technically, the deconstruction of the character is achieved by the decontextualisation of the personage, or by the usage of several acting methods simultaneously, or by the radical separation of an actorís physical and verbal means of expression. Due to the deconstructive technique of acting, the traditional dramatic character acquires a decentered, fragmentary, open-ended theatrical shape providing ample possibilities for its interpretation. This kind of representation not only breathes a new life into a well-known character, but also reflects the post-structural idea of the dissolution of a unified personality
