"New revolutionary electronic punk opera"

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD


"It’s impossible to look away. Powerful and exhilarating"

THE GUARDIAN


"Swaggering, throbbing gig. Clever and enthralling"

THE TIMES


"Full of fierce, rousing joy, free of scripted cues ... Poetic, razor-sharp and disarmingly witty ... Riot Days convinced me that gigs still have the power to move the masses"

CHARLOTTE RICHARDSON ANDREWS


"Darkly humorous, while intelligent lyrics paint a bleak representation of years of suppressed activism"

LOUD AND QUIET


"Stunning audio-visual experience ... Inventive, passionate, darkly funny in parts, twitching with energy and intelligent defiance and anger and yet full of compassion this is a moral tale for our times ... Delivered with an intense brilliance"

LOUDER THAN WAR


"Far from being a conventional gig, it is instead a hard-hitting, punk spirited and encapsulating piece of art theatre"

THE ARGUS


"It went down a storm"

BRIGHTON NEWS


"There is no doubt that the absolutely obscene actions that take place on stage, containing insults of Russia and its leadership, have nothing to do with culture or art"

ABOUT THE BOOK
A Maria Alyokhina's riveting account of her years in Russia’s criminal system and of finding power in the most powerless of situations.
"Brilliant and inspiring. This book is freedom"
CHRIS KRAUS
"Brilliantly written you are completely disarmed, unable to put it down until the last page"
MARINA ABRAMOVIC
"Raw and restless ... Captures a moment when change seemed possible"
THE TELEGRAPH
"A future cult classic"
VOGUE
"A bold, urgent account of activism and imprisonment by a member of Pussy Riot"
THE FINANCIAL TIMES
"Extraordinary... A powerful and poignant prison diary"
THE IRISH TIMES
"A pacy page-turner … A piece of art in itself"
THE GUARDIAN
Alyokhina's two-year sentence launched a bitter struggle against the Russian prison system and an iron-willed refusal to be deprived of her humanity.
"A women's prison memoir like no other"
In February 2012 Pussy Riot performed a «punk prayer», taking on the Orthodox church and its support for Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian regime. For this, they were charged with «organized hooliganism». That trial became an international cause.
