Oliver Lansley interview - 'We wanted to tell Pussy Riot's story from their perspective'


This year, Les Enfants Terribles have teamed up with members of the Russian punk group Pussy Riot to put on a show telling the protest group’s story at the Saatchi Gallery.

LEF’s artistic director Oliver Lansley has written the show, which takes place in a number of purpose-built rooms around the gallery, with Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova.

Lansley says he wanted the experience to feel like “Pussy Riot had broken into the Saatchi and were telling the story their way”.  

Les Enfants Terribles are responsible for other interactive shows in London include Alice’s Adventures Underground, Dinner at the Twits, and The Terrible Infants.

Inside Pussy Riot is at the Saatchi Gallery until 24th December.
