Resumo

Quando se fala da dança pós-moderna americana dos anos 1960 e 1970, fala-se com frequência de corpos, de movimentos e de procedimentos coreográficos democráticos. No entanto, certos aspectos dessas danças (des-hierarquização das partes do corpo e das virtuoses, busca de processos de decisão coletivos...) se opõem de maneira crítica à democracia liberal. Elas seriam reivindicações anarquistas, mais do que democráticas. Baseando-se em três aventuras coletivas americanas, e examinando os escritos de Steve Paxton como testemunha e ator dessas aventuras, este artigo pergunta: o que um postulado anarquista permite ver nessas danças? O que nos ensinam as práticas coreográficas sobre a anarquia?
