1 + 1 = 1 is the first shadow theater production in the Arcadia Troupe's repertoire. A non-verbal show, dedicated to children over the age of 12, teenagers, young people and adults who have deepened their worries, stress, exam and school fatigue, or work routine. What if you could discover the joy of simple things? What if you saw every small event in your life as a miracle? What if you danced in the rain, you played like a child again, you rejoiced that there are stars in the sky today? What would your life look like if you knew that in every moment you could rediscover your innocence, your laughter, your dream? These are questions that 1 + 1 = 1 urges you to reflect on, and to answer, after a spectacular foray into light and shadow.

1+1=1 is a modern approach of the ancient shadow puppets shows, with actors instead of puppets and with spectacular video mapping effects.

Specific to the fairy tale, the character Stan Bolovan goes through a series of fabulous, fantastic adventures, and is tested by some memorable trials. In this story, as in many popular snobs, the way in which cleverness and boldness can compensate and even surpass the physical strength and incredible abilities of some supernatural beings is highlighted.

Stan Bolovan seems to be a link between the famous Romanian fairytale Păcală and a typical Handsome Boy from Romanian legends.

We can't wait to show you a fairy tale like never before - a Romanian story to everyone's liking!
