The article deals with the study of cognitive models that in the context of dramatic art take the form of transsemantic constructions and connect visual and mental spaces of the performance. As follows from the analysis of the performances by famous Russian directors such as Yu. Butusov, A. Moguchiy, D. Krymov, K. Bogomolov, I. Sakaev and others, four types of sense constructions are identified in the direction of mythmaking and performativity. The allegoric and pseudo-allegoric types (Myth I and Performance I) transfer theatrical signs into metalinguistic metaphors and idiomatic expressions and facilitate the transformation of metatext into a mental image. The mysterial and pseudo-mysterial types (Myth II and Performance II) cover the transformation sphere of an immanent mental image into a conceptual symbol that becomes the axis of projection between metaphoric and mythical concepts. The identified constructions help to distinguish the dominant aesthetics of a theatrical performance – metaphorical (poetic), postdramatic and postmodern.
