"In April and May of this year, Seattle theatre company The Seagull Project made history when they traveled to Tashkent, Uzbekistan to participate in the Festival of American Culture: Ilkhom East/West hosted by the Ilkhom Theatre. The Ilkhom was the first independent theatre in the Soviet Union; The Seagull Project was the first American theatre company to be hosted there.
The company received a hefty grant from the US Embassy in Tashkent to underwrite their stay, during which the company members led acting workshops, performed a rock concert and brought their production of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull (first produced at ACT Theatre in 2013) to the Ilkhom stage—all while collaborating with Russian-speaking artists. Co-artistic director Gavin Reub shared some thoughts and photos from the company's trip across the world."
