Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the role of the phenomenon of intermediality in constructing the space in the syncretic and mulitigenre type of theatre performance which is described by its author — the Russian director Vladimir Pankov — as a soundrama. This experimental, non-canonical type of theatre performance synthesizes sign codes of various systems (sound, verbal and visual). The space in the soundrama is individualized and diversified by a set of various stage ideas based on improvisation and compilation of theatre genres, types of performances, tricks, evocative and expressive means and techniques, and types of acting. According to Pankov, the dominant media feature of the soundrama is the sound in all its hypostases. The organization of the sound and music material shapes the space and narration, and creates meaning relations. The soundrama as an art of sound is intended for both auditory and visual reception.
