Pussy Riot Art Community Scheduled Live Performances in US

Pussy Riot Art Community Scheduled Live Performances in US

There’s nothing quite like strong, fearless and relentless women and men who fight for equality, love and justice. From Russia, a group of likeminded feminists created an art group called Pussy Riot in support of LGBT rights, basic human rights and equality while in protest against Russian President, Putin.

In a politicized expression of art, Pussy Riot is merging their vision conveyed through music, by bringing it to life in live performances across the US. A few dates are announced now, with more coming soon.

This will be their first time touring through America, as well as performing at Boston Calling and Hangout Festival. They’ve worked on new music, and compelling and engaging music videos to visually complement the stories in their music.

In this video, we hear the song played, but visually, for the videos entirety we watch two women being completely buried alive. While watching, I progressively continued to feel more and more claustrophobic, finding it harder and harder to breathe. I find that extremely powerful, as the message was clearly addressed.

This video, with extreme political messages, shows the severity in real world issues with an “enough is enough” attitude. Their visuals are extremely graphic, controversial, and disturbing.  Quite frankly, that’s the point.

Besides the musical performances, Pussy Riot will be revealing art in order to bring awareness to their movement, to further spread their message to reach a wider audience and to welcome more protesters to inequality and injustice.

Pussy Riot’s battle to fight and push for change doesn’t come with total freedom or safety. In 2012, Putin’s regime allowed consequence for any outspoken activist, which means that any member of Pussy Riot can be arrested at any point. However, they choose to fight for their community and their rights. They’re going to continue fighting in the US, and they want us to stand up and fight with them. Below are tour dates.
