Pussy Riot is a Russian punk rock protest group of women who don colorful balaclavas and perform in public places to draw attention to the abuses of Vladimir Putin’s regime. Their music and impromptu concerts are a form of “dissident art” created to support individual liberties in the face of an increasingly authoritarian Russian state. Pussy Riot will be represented in Oslo by Maria Alyokhina, who served 21 months in a Russian prison camp for performing a protest song, entitled “Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!,” in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.
