A new site for performances in Russian and English was opened in one of the districts of New York City - Staten Island. A bohemian type cafe, inside which an exhibition hall, a shop, a library, a professional stage and a confectionery functioned at the same time, was liked by the guests.
The Day of Tatiana and Eugene was dedicated to the 185th anniversary of the first publication of the work of Alexander Pushkin "Eugene Onegin". Within the framework of the event, the exhibition of Pushkin's paintings by Eugeni Tonevitski harmoniously blended in.

An exclusive concert with romances with a guitar, poetic readings in two languages and bright musical performances in country style, as well as conversations about literature have found a response from listeners.

A multifaceted show "Just to land in Tokyo" by Kuzma Vostrikov, a writer and a photo artist, took place in the premises of the Tenri Culural Institute in New York, in cooperation with the Museum of Russian Art (MORA).
The first part included a presentation of the same mystical novel. The second one - an exhibition of digital photographs, which were illustrations of the presented book. Visual interpretations were created with the help of abstract images: more than twenty independent works led the viewer to the idea of penetrating beyond the bounds of being, referring to intertwining of new technologies and original oriental culture, exposing its stereotyped perception exclusively through meditative practices.


In conclusion, for the joy of the public, a jazz band was invited to the stage, which exceeded all expectations with its concert program.
