Abstract

Between 2011 and 2013, during the height of the protest movement then sweeping across Russia, the Moscow documentary theatre Teatr.doc experimented with a new form of “witness theatre,” staging a series of participatory performances in which audience members listened to and offered testimony about recent events. The trial of Pussy Riot became an occasion for one such performance.
