INSIDE PUSSY RIOT
New print release in aid of Pussy Riot's breakthrough immersive theatre production
We are pleased to announce that today we are releasing a new print - 'I Drink to Make Other People More Interesting' - in aid of our friends and long term collaborators Pussy Riot's new project - an immersive theatre experience based on their time in prison. The experience will be produced by highly acclaimed theatre group Les Enfants Terrible and take place in London this autumn.
" This wild theatrical experience will allow the audience to become a participant, experiencing exactly what Pussy Riot went through during our imprisonment - from the original Church performance, to the court trial and prison cells. We're going to recreate Russian courtrooms, a real Russian labour colony, solitary confinement cells, priests who shout about banning abortions and many more absurd, but real-life things that exist in Russia today.
The audience will actually get the chance to re-live each one of these experiences themselves, learning what it means to be a political opponent in Russia today. We’ll take you on a journey from the cathedral altar deep into the vaults of the Kremlin itself. Hopefully, this is a journey that you’ll only have to make once in your life. " - Nadya Tolokonnikova, Pussy Riot
