In its fifth edition this year, the Backstreet Festival will bring a tantalizing range of artistic activities to Alexandria, including films, clowning, creative visual technologies, puppets and an a cappella band.
The multidisciplinary festival takes place between 12 and 16 April across several venues in Alexandria: including the Jesuit Cultural Center, the Saint Gabriel Sporting Club, the French Institute of Alexandria, the Spanish Consulate and Teatro Eskendria.
The opening day featured the performances Fault Line from British multimedia artist Rebecca Smith, followed by BandArt from Spain, who will present Ann-Droid–The Wonderful Adventures Of A Robot Girl.
