Overview

A play about the most famous performance art piece in history.

Once upon a time, the Russian feminist art collective Pussy Riot performed their punk prayer, “Virgin Mary, Chase Putin Away!” on the steps of Moscow’s Church of Christ the Savior in protest of the illegal 2012 presidential elections. This performance, lasting all of 48 seconds, earned them two years in jail and international renown as activist royalty. We Are Pussy Riot (or) Everything is P.R. takes on their modern-day legend, performed by the Yurodivy (“holy fools”) and informed by trial transcripts, interviews, letters, and all other matter of media. Through a frantic spectacle, We Are Pussy Riot (or) Everything is P.R. weaponizes the absurd to question the insanity of everyday life.
