Summary/Abstract: Anna Królica’s Art to Discover. A Sketch on Polish Dance is a historical outline of Polish contemporary dance. The author focuses on a few issues: the genealogy and various phases of dance in Poland, and the characteristics of contemporary dance since the 1990s. The reviewer stresses: “the abbreviated form suggests that some of the argument has been copiously pruned. Królica forgoes in-depth analysis, and only gestures at selected phenomena.” In spite of these reservations, Królica’s book plays an important role – it popularizes (new) Polish dance.
