Resumo

Na primeira edição do livro “Rethinking dance history: a reader” (Repensando a história da dança: uma leitura), Alexandra Carter discutiu a necessidade de novas histórias na história da dança. Em particular, ela destacou a importância de ir além das narrativas lineares com pontos finais claros no tempo presente. “Nossas histórias podem acomodar atividades que não parecem contribuir de nenhuma maneira óbvia para o 'desenvolvimento' da forma de arte, mas, em seu tempo, foram uma parte vital dela”. (Carter, 2004, p. 13) Como historiadores da dança, a crítica de Carter nos ajuda a reconhecer que escrever sobre a história da dança é importante, mesmo quando não valida os gostos e ideias artísticas de hoje. Isso sugere que as investigações podem ser ainda mais urgentes, uma vez que pode nos ajudar a superar os preconceitos de nosso próprio tempo.
