The article delivers the author's reflections on relations among the text (speech and secondary), the performing body, performers and spectators in postdramatic theatre and performance, based on Erica Fischer-Lichte's model of a doubled performing body (phenomenal and semiotic). The author elaborates a typology of performing bodily relations: divisional/semi-sensual, substitutional/fully sensual and identical auto-sensual bodily relations upon three different criteria: (1) who is the main producer of sensations, (2) how many senses are involved and (3) what is the nature of the spatial relationship between the performers and the spectators. Three examples are given as an illustration of the above typology: Dani Ploeger's Biotope, Via Negativa's Would Would Not and Janez Janša's The Wailing Wall.
