Fusebox Festival Review: Magdalena Jarkowiec’s In Here
Are we all just doing a dance in a box?
DAILY Arts  April 19, 2018, by Jonelle Seitz
"...I went into In Here already a fan of several things: the choreographic and soft-sculpture work of Magdalena Jarkowiec, the typically nuanced and droll performances of dancers Kelsey Oliver and Alexa Capareda, and the effects of putting things in boxes...."

Magdalena Jarkowiec's Us Kids Are Alone in the House
The Austin-based choreographer is home alone with her soft-sculpture mutants
Arts Story  March 3, 2016, by Jonelle Seitz
"...South of Ben White Boulevard, behind a little house, is a converted barn that artist Magdalena Jarkowiec shares with her husband, a contractor. His half is stocked with tools and lumber, while hers is fitted with cloth-covered tables, two sewing machines, two person-sized plastic bags filled with polyester stuffing, and fabrics in various stages of construction into humanlike figures, body parts, and a television..."

"Disparate Mythos: Women of Sculpture" at Dimension Gallery
In this varied group exhibition, Magdalena Jarkowiec's two-ness shows the richness of sameness and difference in duos
Arts Review  August 18, 2016, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Magdalena Jarkowiec's two-ness is two female figures combined in one at the legs so one stands upright and the other is upside down like a reflection in a still pond. The standing figure has a head, but the bottom one doesn't..."

Performa / Dance's Midsummer Offerings
The three dances in this mixed program all turned on the difficulty of making connections
Arts Review  June 29, 2017, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Given the contexts of brokenness offered in "Better Left Unsaid" and "Fellow Travelers," the fierce sense of optimism and duty in the middle dance on the program, Magdalena Jarkowiec's "Overseas Phone Call, 1987" was especially poignant. Inspired by the landline calls that Jarkowiec's family made to relatives in Socialist-era Poland when she was a child, the quartet depicted two sides thwarted by physical distance, culture, and perhaps even ideology in their desperate attempts, only somewhat successful but almost never hopeless, to communicate...."

Las Cuatro Estaciones: A Story of Human Trees
In Sharon Marroquín's new dance, we are all gnarled and heliotropic
Arts Story  March 23, 2017, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, where I sat in on a rehearsal one Sunday in February. With a cast of eight formidable female dancers plus 10 children, video by Ana Baer, lighting by Scott Vandenberg, and costumes by Magdalena Jarkowiec, the work marks Marroquín's first full production since 2012's The Materiality of Impermanence, a nuanced and vivid work (think shards of glass and a rainbow of bras) about her experience with breast cancer..."

Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company's Disrupted
KDHDC and Dark Circles Contemporary Dance used classical music to launch into playful patterns and absurd rituals
Arts Review  December 8, 2016, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Like Hamrick's previous works, however, the movement was inventive, and lighting and design by Stephen Pruitt created a glowing, saturated world onstage, this time with a color-changing backdrop, beginning in turquoise that melted into navy. Costume designer Magdalena Jarkowiec gave white tops and leggings sporty pops of color on the forearms and shins, calling attention to their expressiveness and vulnerability..."

Top 9 All-In Dance Concerts (Plus 3 Short Works) of 2013
This year, dancers took on weighty matters – gender, the body, grief – exploring them with remarkable depth
Arts Story  January 3, 2014, by Jonelle Seitz

At its best, this program of five choreographers riffing on 'Heart' pulled me in and provoked me to deeper exploration
Arts Review  October 4, 2013, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Each worried, reaching solo, to alternately driving and plaintive music by Graham Reynolds, picked up where the last one had left off: Del Rosario cradled her left arm – its slight, delicate atrophy from fingers to elbow the result of an accident years earlier – and Marroquín, in turn, raised her left arm with her right only to watch the left drop back to her side. Outfitted in loose tops and pants, two in red and two in indigo (costumes by Magdalena Jarkowiec), the women seemed not just the chambers of the organ but also members of a family or facets of a self (is there a difference?) that had fallen out of concert...."

Galaxy Dance Studios
Can Lorn MacDougal save South Lamar's movement space?
Arts Story  June 14, 2013, by Jonelle Seitz
"...A quiet crusader, MacDougal is subtly honing the class schedule from an anything-goes approach toward more curated offerings – for example, a children's creative dance and drawing camp replaced a slightly tacky princess pre-ballet – and highlighting the performance space through co-productions, such as Nicole Roerick's Morose Beauty in May, a success by all measures. Next up, MacDougal and her partner Alain Le Razer, under their organization All Things Animate, will present Made in Austin, a program of short works by Magdalena Jarkowiec, Lisa Del Rosario, Rosalyn Nasky, Roerick, and MacDougal, and films by Le Razer and Katherine Hodges...."
