The event is presented with the Woody Guthrie Center, who will recognize Pussy Riot with the annual Woody Guthrie Prize the night before. Circle Cinema Members will have an exclusive meet and greet Pussy Riot from 5:30-6:30pm before the public event at 7:00pm.



Pussy Riot will discuss their work and take questions from the audience in between film and music clips from their career, moderated by Tulsa music promoter Julie Wenger Watson. Tickets are $20 for Circle Members and $25 non-Members, on sale now.


“Pussy Riot’s message has never been more relevant, and we are proud to join the Woody Guthrie Center in welcoming the group to Tulsa,” said Circle Cinema Executive Director Brent Ortolani. He continued, “We strive to make events more than just a movie, and our Members will have a great opportunity to meet the band and learn more about what they do to stand against fascism.”



The Russian punk-rock protest group Pussy riot was founded in 2011 and gained recognition for their arrests over public protests in Russia against Putin’s policies. Their music and work promoting feminism, LGBTQ+ rights, and denouncing fascism continue to inspire activists around the world.


After the Member Meet & Greet, the public "Evening with" event begins at 7:00p. Guests will get a look at Pussy Riot’s music and legacy through film clips and have a chance to ask questions moderated by Julie Wenger Watson. Julie has worked in all aspects of music promotion, from talent buying to hospitality and marketing. During her career, she has been the Director of Tulsa’s All Soul Acoustic Coffeehouse, host of a local music & conversation radio program, and the Co-Director of Tulsa Roots Music, a non-profit music presenter she co-founded in 2012.


Pussy Riot are in Tulsa to receive the Woody Guthrie Prize, to be awarded at a Cain’s Ballroom event on Saturday May 6. Every year, the Woody Guthrie Center awards the prize to an artist who best exemplifies Woody Guthrie’s spirit and work by speaking for the less fortunate through music, film, literature, dance or other art forms and serving as a positive force for social change. Pussy Riot will accept the award before an interview and musical performance. Tickets for the event at Cain’s are still available at CainsBallroom.com.


The event at Circle on Sunday May 7 will be the only other opportunity to see Pussy Riot in Tulsa. Don't miss out, get your tickets now before they sell out!
