Pussy Riot Theatre: Revolution

About this National Sawdust+ Show

 Pussy Riot presents its new music-theater project, PUSSY RIOT THEATRE. They will perform the world premiere of a new piece, “Revolution,” based on the book of Maria Alyokhina – one of the leaders of Pussy Riot. This is Maria’s personal story of Pussy Riot, including their legendary protest punk actions in balaclavas, hiding from police, their arrest, time in a Moscow jail and police investigation, trial and sentencing to a remote penal colony. The roster of performers will include Maria Alyokhina herself, Kiryl Kanstantsinau, AWOTT (Asian Women On The Telephone) psycho-punk music duo, and VJ Vasily Bogatov. The hour-long piece about protest art and political activism in a hostile state will be directed by Yury Muravitsky and produced by Alexander Cheparukhin, with video footage by Taisia Krugovykh and video art by Katya Sсheglova. The NS+ evening will end with a conversation with members of the creative team.
