TinCan at Backstreet Festival in Alexandria, Egypt
TinCan have been in Egypt, in Alexandria to perfom, it was a sweaty and fantastic trip. We were invited by the Backstreet Festival, that now run on its second year. The program puppetry, music, dance, site specific performances and contemporary circus.
It was rewarding to see their enthusiasm and openmind to the, not always so recognizable performing arts. And to see and experience “the new Egypt” after the revolution.
We performing with a light version of Camping Delight, and taught a 2 day circusworkshop for dancers and actors from Iran, Egypt, Tunisia and Spain in acrobatics and juggling, with a focus on choreography and stage presence. We hope to come back next year with an even longer workshop ..
