PussyRiot need little introduction, the Russian protest art collective have one of the most important voices of the last 10 years who's lyrical themes include feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group consider to be a dictator.

Gaining global notoriety in 2012 when three of the groups members, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich were imprisoned for «hooliganism motivated by religious hatred» for their preformance inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, a protest directed at the Orthodox Church leaders' support of Putin during his election campaign.

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikov were released in December 2013 (Samutsevich was freed on probation in 2012). In March 2014, Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova founded Zona Prava, an organization that defends prisoners' rights. Alyokhina is a recipient of the Lennon Ono Grant for Peace and has also been awarded the Hannah Arendt Prize for Political Thought.

In September 2017 Maria Alyokhina will release her memoir RIOT DAYS (Penguin Books), the accompany piece to the book is the touring play RIOT DAYS («Revolution») that merges punk, electronica, theater, documentary footage and protest.

RIOT DAYS («Revolution») will see Maria Alyokhina, Kyril Masheka — her main stage partner on «Burning Doors», Nastya (one of the leaders of Pussy Riot of 2011-2012) and Max of the music duo AWOTT (Asian Women On The Telephone), and Olga (another Pussy Riot member), perform throughout the UK. The project is produced by Alexander Cheparukhin and directed by Yury Muravitsky — one of the leading Russian theatre directors, winner of the «Golden Mask» annual Russian theatre award.

Fri 17th Nov — London, Islington Assembly Hall
Sat 18th Nov — Bristol, Marble Factory

— BDY_PRTS are a band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland comprising of two songwriters – Chicago-raised Jill O’Sullivan (of cult band Sparrow And The Workshop) and Jenny Reeve (of Strike The Colours and frequent Malcolm Middleton collaborator) — alongside drummer/producer Jonny Scott (The Kills, Chvrches and Marnie).

Describing themselves as “electro future-pop” on record their music is a melody-driven, 80s-tinged indie-electro-pop fusion. Live BDY_PRTS sound is coupled with a unique and striking visual identity, aided by of the otherworldly and genre-defying costumes designed with visual artists Urara Tsuchiya and Lesley Anne Hepburn. On stage Jill and Jenny’s intertwining costumed limbs offer a visual feast whilst their vocals, melodies and full band set-up (with guitar and drums) one for the ear, creating a show full of sonic and theatrical flair.
