PUSSY RIOT is a Russian feminist protest art collective based in Moscow. Founded in March 2011, 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 a dictator.

The group gained global notoriety when five members of the group staged a Punk Prayer performance inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior in 2012. On August 17, 2012, three Pussy Riot members - Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Ekaterina Samutsevich were convicted of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred", and each was sentenced to two years' imprisonment.

RIOT DAYS was conceived in 2016 by founder member Maria Alyokhina and music producer Alexander Cheparukhin. It is an innovative combination of live music, theatre and video which tells the personal story of Alyokhina as a member of Pussy Riot: actions in Red Square and the Cathedral, arrest, court, prison. The show has received several prestigious international awards, including Herald Angel Award and Total Theatre Award of Edinburgh Festivals and has toured extensively throughout USA and Europe.

powerful and exhilarating... Alyokhina’s collaboration with music producer Alexander Cheparukhin and director Yury Muravitsky was full of fierce, rousing joy, free of scripted cues. ... poetic, razor-sharp and disarmingly witty... I left blazing with hope... Riot Days convinced me that gigs still have the power to move the masses. (The Guardian)
