"Shop Talks"

The U.S. Embassy in Moscow, in coordination with the Forum for Cultural Engagement and the American Center in Moscow, has launched a series of virtual discussions to continue a cultural dialogue between Russians and Americans during a time of limited cultural performances and travel due to the effects of Covid-19.

“Shop Talks” Virtual Cultural Program

What is required to achieve success as an artist in America?

The Shop Talks master class and lecture series highlight the creative process of renowned American artists from a wide variety of disciplines. The series features a theater artist who builds large-scale productions with puppets, a dancer/choreographer who also runs a full-time dance school, a Broadway music director/conductor/producer, a theater director who develops original musicals from the ground up, and a tap dancer inspired by Latin, Soul, Funk and Hip Hop. These celebrated virtuosos speak live from their homes about their careers and the challenges and surprises of virtual collaboration in this time of isolation.

All events livestreamed on the YouTube-channel of the American Center in Moscow on Wednesdays, 7:00-8:00 pm Moscow time / 12:00-1:00 pm U.S. Eastern time.

We invite you to join “Shop Talks” — a weekly series of conversations and masterclasses with American cultural performers and experts.
