FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2/24/2017

Russia’s riot grrrl activists, Pussy Riot, reveal a 9 date West Coast warm-up tour around the SXSW premiere of their psych rock theater production, “REVOLUTION.”

Based on the original novel by Maria Alyokhina, this show tells the story of everyday women gathering to resist the fascist regime of President Vladimir Putin. From their balaclava-clad punk prayer in Saviour Cathedral to their guerilla-style protests in Moscow’s Red Square, the hour long piece reveals the group’s excruciating account of a corrupt trial, years of violent abuse in the Russian prison system, and their never-ending demand for justice in a hostile state. REVOLUTION brings attention to the ever present problems of censorship in the media, violence towards the LGBTQ community, corruption within Russia’s judicial system, and use of tyrannical use of violence within the country’s prison complex.

The roster of performers include Maria Alyokhina herself, Kiryl Kanstantsinau, AWOTT (Asian Women On The Telephone) psycho-punk duo, and VJ Vasily Bogatov.

Directed by Yury Muravitsky and produced by Alexander Cheparukhin, with video footage by Taisia Krugovykh and video art by Katya Sсheglova, this is a one-time world debut.

The evening will end with a conversation with members of the creative team.
