“ We have a voice.  We have a choice.  We want to inspire people.  Community is stronger than any government.  To overcome nationalism, sexism, racism, fear and indifference, we should riot together!  You have a voice. I'll show you !” –Maria Alyokhina (Pussy Riot)

Pussy Riot Theatre

In December 2016, Maria Alyokhina and music producer Alexander Cheparukhin started a new project – Pussy Riot Theatre with Riot Days - a play based on Alyokhina's book Riot Days (published in UK in Summer 2017). There are 4 people on stage: 2 women and 2 men. Maria Alyokhina herself, Kyril Masheka - her main stage partner plus Nastya and Max of the music duo AWOTT (Asian Women On The Telephone).  The project is produced by Alexander Cheparukhin and directed by Yury Muravitsky - one of the leading Russian theatre directors.

Pussy Riot is a Russian protest art collective founded in 2011 and based in Moscow.  The group staged unauthorized provocative guerrilla punk rock performances in unusual public places, which were made into music videos and posted on the Internet. The collective's lyrical themes included feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group considered to be a dictator. They gained global notoriety when five members of the group staged a performance inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior in 2012. On March, 2012, three of the group members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich were arrested and charged with hooliganism and sentenced to two years of imprisonment. The trial and sentence attracted considerable attention and criticism, particularly in the West.  Human-Rights groups, including Amnesty International, which designated the women as prisoners of conscience, adopted the case.  Having served 21 months, the girls were released on December 23, 2013.
