ASHTAR Theatre International Youth Festival

The Ashtar Youth Theatre International Festival takes place every two years at Ashtar Theatre in Palestine. A dynamic Palestinian Theatre with a progressive global perspective. Aims to promote creativity and commitment for change through a novel combination of specific training and acting programs and services and professional theatre performances. ASHTAR is a non-profit theatre organization that was established in 1991 as the first theatre training organization for youth in Palestine. One of ASHTAR’s pioneering specialties is a highly successful genre known as Forum Theatre. The purpose of Forum Theatre is to promote a more active dialogue and commitment for change within the society. ASHTAR’s core troupe of professional actors performs several high quality plays during the year introducing new theatre forms in Palestine. Increased cooperation with internationally known actors and directors ensure continuous professional development of the team, students and the wider theatre community as well as improve the entertainment culture in Palestine.
