ASHTAR Students

ASHTAR International Youth Festival in its 4th edition brought together 50 youth and theatre experts from Palestine, Russia, USA, Poland, France and Germany. They spent 10 days to gether in a Camp-Fest Style; followed daily training in theatre techniques, and peformed 7 new plays in 5 cities around the West Bank. 1700 people attended the performances, 900 of them were children and youth from rural and marinalised areas.

The performances were very well received by the audience and the mass media covered the event on daily basis. 

All international participants were very enthusiastic and some of them expanded their stay in the country after the festival, to volunteer at AHSTAR Theatre and see the country even more. 

Some of the participants comments on the festival:

Malik Meyer from Germany said: "The youth from Ashtar hosting the festival made it very successful, welcoming, making me a real part of it."

Delia Remi from France said: "It is a rare thing to take part in this type of festival in such a warm and inclusive atmosphere. It brings everyone to give their best and I feel everyone really did."

Ashely Merinaccio from USA said: "Cultural trips really helped the American group understand the situation in Palestine."
