Pussy Riot: Riot Days

Pussy Riot need little introduction, given the Russian protest art collective has one of the most important voices of protest in the last 10 years.

Gaining global notoriety in 2012 when three members, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich were imprisoned for “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” for their performance inside Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour Pussy Riot has become synonymous with rebellion and freedom of expression. 

An accompanying piece to Alyokhina’s memoir Riot Days the touring performance Pussy Riot: Riot Days merges punk, electronica, theatre, documentary footage and protest.

 “Riot Days is more than just a gig – it’s somewhere between a gripping piece of Putin-skewering musical theatre, an urgent jazz-punk book recital and a film screening that unfurls like a nerve-shredding thriller.” — The Guardian
