“Days of Rebelion” is an hour long musical – theater piece about protests and art in enemy territory, based on a book by Maria Alyokhina, a member of Pussy Riot.

This is a personal story of this group including their protest actions, hiding from the police, arrests, Moscow jail, police interrogations and trial.

The book will be published in September this year in the US, Canada, UK, France and Germany and a number of editors, publishers and people like Patti Smith already evaluated it as a “breakthrough”, “star writing”, etc. 

Besides Maria Alyokhina, the show will feature: Kyril Masheka - her main stage partner on “Burning Doors", Nastya (one of the leaders of Pussy Riot of 2011-2012) and Max of the music duo AWOTT (Asian Women On the Telephone), and Olga Borisova - another Pussy Riot member. The project is produced by Alexander Cheparukhin and directed by Yury Muravitsky - one of the leading Russian theatre directors, winner of Golden Mask annual Russian theatre award. 

Pussy Riot is a Russian protest art collective founded in March 2011 as provocative guerrilla punk-rock performance, performed unannounced in unusual places, and dealt with topics such as feminism, LGBT rights and was an opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, that the group considers a dictator. They attracted global attention by performing in Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior in early 2012, after which they were arrested and prosecuted.
