Play | We Are Pussy Riot or Everything Is P.R.: The Greatest Piece of Performance Art in Russia's History


In 2012, on the eve of Putin becoming president again, a small group of activists had an idea to create “Pussy Riot”, an anonymous punk feminist protest performance group. They dress up in bright colors and balaclavas and perform punk songs encouraging attention to be paid to Putin’s crimes.  This is a play by Barbara Hammond that explores the young feminist activists, who call themselves Pussy Riot. They offered up a punk prayer in Moscow’s Orthodox Cathedral. They played and shouted for exactly 48 seconds before being dragged out of the church by security guards. That night they uploaded a video of their performance to YouTube becoming enemies of both the Church and the State.  The girls were arrested and put on trial. Through the internet and mass media the word got out the world hold of the story and turned Pussy Riot into the greatest piece of performance art in Russian history. This is their story.
