Fruu is a live meeting of four artists, creating a single organism, once escaping into the form, once trying to get out of it, who bring the audience into silence ... we could say that while moving they walk on the ice at the corners of the world. Under the ice, though, full life of microorganisms goes on, although at first glance, it can't be seen. 
The essence of Fruu is the body and the sound, therefore dance, or rather choreography and music become the key tools for the artists to create this rather "Bergman-like" world. The whole somehow strikes a balance between an attempt to find life in the form and the form in life, yet, it’s not trying to grasp some obvious meanings, but rather look for contrasts that make up some very fragile emotional charge in the performance.

press reviews: 

"Fruu" can be read as an affirmation of freedom - creative, artistic, freedom of dance. It's a concoction of meanings, orders, fact and fiction. It is worth being carried away by this hour-long fleeting moment in the rhythm of Dada and Olo Walicki's music. 
Łukasz Rudziński, tró
Most importantly, in "Fruu" no one tried to equalise them with one another other. It wasn't a single, consistent, perfectly synchronized message and in this imperfection one could find subtlety, harmony and polyphony of the story.
Magdalena Zielińska, Teatralia Trójmiasto
