About Silk Road Salon 2019
How are Muslim artists in Russia and the former Soviet Republics of Central Asia creating art that pushes boundaries without inciting censorship and government reprisals? Come to our annual Salon to meet with Moscow-based playwrights Olzhas Zhanaydarov and Evgeny Kazachkov who will provide insider perspectives on theatre-making in Russia. The conversation will be moderated by Silk Road Rising Co-Founder Jamil Khoury, whose play "Mosque Alert" was translated into Russian by Evgeny. In June of 2019, Jamil will journey to Russia to see performances of the translation in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
