Abstrakt. Origins of the dramatic arts and puppetry action are reviewed in the context of primary irrational manifestations — the Upper Paleolithic art and funeral rites. These phenomena are particularly correlated with the psychophysiology of figurative perception and classical psychoanalysis-inspired interpretation of other psychological phenomena, i. e. dreams and games. We assume that they appeared out of the human need for the inner, alternative reality, and served as a peculiar psychological protective mechanism, which had actualized the human basic reserves. Lack of the reserves mentioned could lead straight to mankind’s extinction.

Keywords: dramatic arts, Upper Paleolithic art, funeral rites, classical psychoanalysis.
