Maria Alyokhina has penned an accompanying memoir.
The band who stood up to – and subsequently fell foul of – Vladimir Putin, Pussy Riot, make their performing Irish bow in November in the Dublin Button Factory (23) and Belfast Mandela Hall (24).
Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich were imprisoned for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" for their 2012 performance inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, a protest directed at the Orthodox Church leaders' support of Putin during his election campaign.
Following her release, Alyokhina penned a memoir, RIOT DAYS, which is published this September by Penguin.
The accompanying touring play, RIOT DAYS (Revolution), that they’re performing here merges punk, electronica, theatre, documentary footage and protest.
Tickets priced €20 and £19 respectively go on sake on Friday July 21 at 9am.
