Pussy Riot’s worked on new music and video art, such as: “I Can’t Breathe”, their first English language song made in honor of Eric Garner, “Chaika” about Russia’s corrupt prosecutor general, “Make America Great Again” which was eerily created and shot before #45 was elected president, and “Police State” with a video starring Chloe Sevigny and released at the end of last year. Alongside the performances, there will be new art revealed to spread the continued calls for action and protest to a wider audience.Art is just a part of Pussy Riot’s mission. Pussy Riot would like to rally with you at these upcoming live performances.
