Festival Description

GALA STAR is an international competition-festival dedicated to all artists that express themselves in a variety of ways, under the one-man show category: theatre, choreography-theatre, puppetry, circus-theatre, pantomime, stand-up comedy, etc. The competition is open to Romanian contestants as well as foreign contestants and is intended to stimulate the public’s interest in recitals, as an autonomous form of entertaining, and the artists’ interest in the individual shows and authors – as a formula meant to highlight the potential of the creative entertainers.
