Early May, Maria Alyokhina managed to escape from Russia. The only paper she gave an interview to was The New York Times. She escaped just in time for the start of the European tour last week. This week Pussy Riot is performing "Riot Days" in Leuven/BE and Amsterdam/NL. The show "Riot Days" is based on the book of Alyokhina about her activism and her time in a detention camp. A very impressive show indeed!
Protest art collective Pussy Riot based in Moscow formed in 2011 with approx. 11 women participating. They staged unauthorised provocative guerrilla punk rock performances in unusual public places, which brought 3 of them to prison camps. Maria Alyokhina was one of them. She wrote a book about it, “Riot Days”. The book is the basis for this multi-media performance. Read also the great interview in The Music.
