Summary/Abstract: Katarzyna Lemańska reviews Sally Banes's book Terpsichore in Sneakers: Post-Modern Dance (Polish edition: Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne in cooperation with the Music and Dance Institute, Krakow 2013). Over thirty years after its first publication, a book considered a classic of dance theater has been translated into Polish. The author of the review stresses that Terpsichore... is not an historical outline in the strict academic sense, but combines many fields of observation of avant-garde dance phenomena in the 1960s and 1970s in the USA. The book includes not only outstanding portraits of artists affiliated with the described movement and sketches of their work, but also fragments of interviews with the artists.
