PUSSY RIOT: RIOT DAYS, The Haunt, Brighton - 19th November 2017

Correct use of a Sunday afternoon. Watch the sun set over the magnificent decaying ruins of the West Pier (how do the starlings DO that?!) then across the road to Pool Valley, to The Haunt, for the sold out Sunday matinee of 'Riot Days', a one hour mix of music, movie and punk propaganda led by Maria Alyokhina, one third of Russian agitprop collective Pussy Riot. I'd feared the worst, that it would be something of an incoherent mess. Far from it! The cleverly joined-up piece narrates the lead-up to, and execution of a demonstration against the Putin-led Russian State and Orthodox church in a Moscow cathedral in February 2012 in the run-up to the following month's election, the subsequent trial and imprisonment of the band, and the relentless challenging of the prison authorities for convicts to be treated as human beings with basic human rights, as told from the viewpoint of Alyokhina. It's sparse, grinding and spell-binding and the all-Russian narration adds beautifully to the harshness of the piece (there's English subtitles on the accompanying movie - even if the low slung venue meant that was ALL you could see of the movie). In the end it's about not letting the bast*rds grind you down, or as Alyokhina puts it 'to back down an inch is to give up a mile'. Punk's not dead, it just evolved.

Renowned political activists and world famous punk rock band Pussy Riot are ready to hit the UK. The Russian protest art collective have one of the most important voices of the last 10 years who's lyrical themes include feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group consider to be a dictator.

Gaining global notoriety in 2012 when three of the groups members, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich were imprisoned for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" for their preformance inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, a protest directed at the Orthodox Church leaders' support of Putin during his election campaign.

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikov were released in December 2013 (Samutsevich was freed on probation in 2012). In March 2014, Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova founded Zona Prava, an organization that defends prisoners' rights. Alyokhina is a recipient of the Lennon Ono Grant for Peace and has also been awarded the Hannah Arendt Prize for Political Thought.

In September 2017 Maria Alyokhina will release her memoir RIOT DAYS (Penguin Books), the accompany piece to the book is the touring play RIOT DAYS ("Revolution") that merges punk, electronica, theater, documentary footage and protest.

It’s Pussy Riot’s story, my story, Russia’s story,” she tells me. “It’s a story of choice. I wrote it because I think that I believe there are no heroes, and every person has a story to tell and I wanted to show that anyone can be Pussy Riot. ” - Maria Alyokhina

Catch their performances at The Marble Factory at Bristol, The Haunt at Brighton, Gorilla in Manchester and Glasgow’s Oran Mor during November 2017.
