The Price of Protest: Commonspace Live
with Nadya Tolokonnikova of PussyRiot and Applied Mechanics

On February 21, 2012, Nadya Tolokonnikova and the other members of the band Pussy Riot went into a cathedral and performed their 'punk rock prayer' that criticized the Russian Orthodox church, and called for the defeat of Vladimir Putin. The price they paid for their protest was two years' imprisonment.

Nadya had been an activist for years already. Not even the cruel and unusual treatment she suffered at the hands of the Russian government during her incarceration silenced her. Come hear in her own words the importance of standing up, no matter what the consequences.

Before the show, Philadelphia's own Applied Mechanics brings back a 'remix' of their own acclaimed 2014 'punk rock prayer,' We Are Bandits, which was inspired by Pussy Riot.
