Riveting story about Russian rebels

In an utterly effective mix of saxophone solos and electronica, hard-hitting documentary footage and political criticism, Pussy Riot tells the riveting tale of Maria Alyokhina’s protest and imprisonment in its musical theatre performance called Riot Days. Pussy Riot achieved worldwide fame with its provocative guerrilla performances in public places. The collective is still every bit as relevant as when it was formed in 2011.

‘Imagine if we had the power to meet our own future’ – Maria Alyokhina (Pussy Riot)

Het Grote Onbekende – The Great Unknown

During Explore the North 2019 you will be encountering the Great Unknown (het Grote Onbekende) – the future, the other – filled with hope and positivity. Artists always willing to brave the barricades and who dare to claim their righteous place in this world will whisk you away. They have ideals and dare to pursue them. They fantasise about new worlds. Perhaps a friendlier one, or a more beautiful or healthier one. Or simply different – use your illusion! In any case, they see a future where they (and you!) have influence. This is something you can share. Or better yet, contribute to.
