"The Streets of Tokyo Resound with Chopin.
The Polish Dance Theatre amazes again. Their newest production «Chopin – Fresh Fruits» originally combines etudes and ballades with the vibrant atmosphere of Harajuku streets. Blasphemous for some, considered innovative by others, for me, the show is as fresh as fruits and a great fun". 
Agnieszka Misiewicz, "Teatralia" (May 2009)
