Summary/Abstract: A report from the 4th edition of the Body/Mind Festival (17 September-2 October, Warsaw). The author observes that this year’s edition tackled the subject of history – and the history of dance, above all. She then outlines the approaches to this issue taken by the plays presented during the festival: Portrait of a Dancer by Lütz Förster, Fake it byJanez Janša, Re//mix by Weronika Pelczyńska, A Mary Wigman Dance Evening by Fabian Barba, and The Show Must Go on by Jérôme Bel. In the final performance of the festival, all the subjects raised in the other performances appeared at once: plays on conventions and structures of dance, as well as their travesties, redefinitions, and remixes.
