The article discusses a new way of communication, called paratactile (haptic), that appears in modern avant-garde theatre originating in the theatre of Antoin Artaud. The basis of this communication is magic thinking and perception described by Florian Znaniecki as ‘mystical solidarity’. The idea of paratactile communication lies in transposing in the consciousness of an actor and a viewer iconic images and rhetorical figures to sensory impressions. Examples of this type of communication, analysed later in the article, can be found in the theatre practices of Staniewski and Mądzik.
