I could burrow through half a dozen dictionaries and still not find the words to describe Polish theatremaker Leszek Madzik and his company Scena Plastyczna: Madzik is breathtaking, purely imagist in a preconscious realm unapproachable through conventional language. - Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader, 1994
Leszek Madzik has created an epitaph for a beloved one, written with the beautiful, radiant language of black and white images and the voice of Urszula Dudziak. The spectacle is shocking and movingly beautiful. - Echo Dnia, January 28, 2005
Looking at the images I allow myself to be hypnotized, forgetting that there is life elsewhere. The darkness I am facing acquires the characteristics of a living being that swallows and spits out human silhouettes. I do not know whether this is what we see at the end. If I had my choice, I would ask the Almighty for "Passing Away". - Roman Pawlowski, Gazeta Wyborcza, July 5, 2004
To hear one jazz vocalist embrace five octaves, visit Urszula Dudziak here.
