PUSSY RIOT THEATRE is a new Pussy Riot's project, lead by Maria Alyokhina.

PUSSY RIOT is a Russian a protest art collective based in Moscow. Founded in March 2011, it had a variable membership of approximately 11 women. The group staged unauthorised provocative guerrilla punk rock performances in unusual public places, which were made into music videos and posted on the Internet. The collective's lyrical themes included feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group considered to be a dictator. These themes also encompassed Putin's links to the leadership of the Russian Orthodox Church. In December 2016 Maria Alyokhina and music producer Alexander Cheparukhin started a new project – PUSSY RIOT THEATRE with RIOT DAYS – a play based on Alyokhina's book „RIOT DAYS“ (should be published in UK in Summer 2017 by Penguin Books, in USA in Fall 2017 by Metropolitan Books). There are 4 people on stage. 2 women and 2 men. Maria Alyokhina herself, Kyril Masheka – her main stage partner on „Burning Doors“, and Nastya and Max of the music duo AWOTT (Asian Women On The Telephone). The project is produced by Alexander Cheparukhin and directed by Yury Muravitsky – one of the leading Russian theatre directors, winner of „Golden Mask“ annual Russian theatre award.
