The International Street Parade

More than 300 participants are expected to take part in the first Alexandrian International Street Parade. Besides the international artists and those who took part in the series of workshops, the Parade will count one brass band, two Nubian musical bands as well as a Clown group. This long défilé will circle around the pedestrian area in front of the Citadel, for two hours, bringing a joyful, colourful atmosphere to this landmark of Alexandria. The Parade will end with a set of informal presentations done by Hip Hop dancers, clowns, and a group of characters inspired by the Comedia Dell’Arte.

Brouhaha International has been organising the Street Parade in Liverpool (UK) for almost twenty years. The Alexandrian Parade is directly inspired by the event taking place in the UK each summer.

Centre Rézodanse – Egypte is the local organiser of the event, in partnership with other local cultural bodies such as the Anna Lindh Foundation, the Greek Cultural Centre in Alexandria, and local schools.

The Parade and the workshops are supported and funded by the Cultural Program of the European Commission.
