Italy-Iran Joint Play Wins in RomaniaItaly-Iran Joint Play Wins in Romania

The Iranian-Italian joint play ‘1+1’ was staged at the 13th  International Theater Festival for Children in Bucharest on October 12 and won the jury award at the closing ceremony on October 14.

The play, co-directed by Omid Niaz and Guglielmo Papa, is a co-production of La Società della Civetta, Italian theater company in Bologna, and Nan-o Aroosak (bread and doll), an award-winning children theater company in Isfahan.

It tells the story of two men from two different cultures and backgrounds, each with their own luggage , who meet in an unowned land. After a bitter fight, the two decide to share it and split the land in two to take possession. An invisible line in the middle divides them and at the same time protects them. Opening their bags, the two find pieces of their past, fragments of their lives. They start to build their new worlds there.

Launched in 2005, the Romanian festival is a comprehensive program aimed at expanding theater education, literacy and the aesthetic taste of the younger audience through shows, seminars on performing arts, debates and theater workshops for children.
