About

We now need your help and invite you to be a part of a collaborative approach to making this happen.

You can support by donating to the production costs needed to bring “Inside Pussy Riot” to life.
The creators, Les Enfants Terribles, are an award winning London based company known for their innovative productions such as Alice’s Adventures Underground that vividly bring exciting theatrical experiences to audiences all around the world.
The co-creator, Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, will be taking part in a selection of shows including the opening day. The actors will take the audience, into the journey Pussy Riot endured during their epic ordeal when they were arrested, forced through a flawed judicial system and finally transported to a Russian jail…
The rewards for the Kickstarter pledges are named “Kremlin Stooge”, “Down With The Patriarchy”, Riot 101”, “Kill The Sexist!”, Straight Outta Vagina”, “Punk Prayer”, etc. and can be found HERE. “Inside Pussy Riot” is due to open in London this autumn but only if we raise the production costs in advance We hope to raise at least £60 000 and with your help we can achieve it!!

Nadya Tolokonnikova from Pussy Riot, says:
“I’m asking for your support in an exciting new project. Pussy Riot, together with Les Enfants Terribles, is working on a break-through immersive theatre project. This wild, immersive theatrical experience will allow the audience to become a participant, experiencing exactly what Pussy Riot went through during our imprisonment – from the original Church performance, to the court trial and prison cells. We’re going to recreate Russian courtrooms, a real Russian labour colony, solitary confinement cells, priests who shout about banning abortions and many more absurd, but real-life things that exist in Russia today.  The audience will actually get the chance to re-live each one of these experiences themselves in London, learning what it means to be a political opponent in Russia today. We’ll take you on a journey from the cathedral altar deep into the vaults of the Kremlin itself. Hopefully, this is a journey that you’ll only have to make once in your life.”
“We’re hoping that this production will be funded by regular people from around the world who are excited about the idea of political immersive theatre and we need your help! In order to ensure its launch we need to pre-fund this high-tech production – and fast. All the money raised will be spent on the gallery space, the set design, employing actors and staff for the show’s 6 week run and making those rooms in London look exactly like solitary confinement cells in the Russian prison I did my time in.”

Alexandrina Markvo, from BIRD&CARROT the producer of “Inside Pussy Riot” says:
“Shining light on the darkness is the best way to expose injustices. Our goal is to create not only a breakthrough theatre piece, but something that can promote the cause of human rights, highlight corruption in the Russian legal and judicial processes and give audiences a sense of how fragile our seemingly ‘safe society’ is. This is an important project that also has immense educational value, especially in the context of the unpredictability of the world we live in.”

James Seager of Les Enfants Terribles continues:
“Creating an immersive and detailed world is an inherently expensive proposition but something we believe is important in order to truly transport audiences into a realistic environment that fully serves the Pussy Riot story.  Now is a perfect time to remind audiences what actually happened and how one’s basic human rights and freedom of expression  can be taken away at any point.”
