Summary/Abstract: A response to Małgorzata Leyko and Wojciech Dudzik’s polemic printed in the current issue of “Didaskalia.” Borowski and Sugiera address all the accusations made against them, explaining: “We had no intention of presenting the whole panorama of works on performance studies, nor to bypass certain accomplishments in the field (...) To illustrate our thesis we selected certain texts (...) with the deep conviction that they best illustrated the subject we were dealing with (…).” They also explain their translation decisions with reference to how the words already function in Polish terminology.
