We’ve got tickets to PussyRiot in Conversation with ZARINA ZABRISKY @ The Warfield!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news



Those in tune with social justice issues will be well-acquainted with Pussy Riot, the Russian feminist punk group that have become the subjects of global conversation following their outspoken protests of Putin’s regime. The subsequent jail time of members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina not only sparked an international dialogue about the state of politics in Russia and several further protests demanding they be freed, but even warranted a cameo on Netflix’s House of Cards, in which the two played themselves.

Now, two members of the group concerned with all facets of human rights in Russia, Maria “Masha” Alyokhina and Ksenia Zhivago, are coming to The Warfield in San Francisco for a discussion with Russian-born Zarina Zabrisky, a SF author and co-founder of a local arts collective that draws attention to these same issues. You’ll learn about the story behind Pussy Riot in addition to the humanitarian and civil rights efforts of the group through their nonprofit, “Zona Prava” (Zone of Rights). During the discussion, they’ll also screen clips from the HBO documentary on their story, Pussy vs. Putin and other clips from protests & Zona Prava-related projects. Via Upout.
