ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
On 25th August 1968 a slight woman is coming to Red Square in Moscow. She is pushing a pram with her three-month-old son. There is a hand-written banner under the baby blanket. It says For Your Freedom and Ours. The woman is sitting down on the pavement together with seven other people. They are spreading their banners just when the clock at Spassky Tower is striking noon.

The performance is based on the book of the same name by Natalya Gorbanevskaya, who was one of these “Brave eight”. The demonstration was dispersed in a few minutes by undercover agents of the State Security Service and its participants were arrested. After that they were questioned, tried, imprisoned, sent to exile, labour camps or psychiatric prison-hospitals.

Natalya Gorbanevskaya was arrested a year later due to her little son. Before it happened in December 1969, she regularly informed foreign mass media about the trial with her colleagues and friends and she wrote a book called Noon. The case became known all over the world after the book was published in western countries. Natalya Gorbanevskaya was sent to a mental hospital, like many other Soviet dissidents of that time (e.g. Viktor Fainberg, Vladimir Bukovsky). She was treated for alleged schizophrenia with a specific diagnosis of Brezhnev’s regime called “heresy of reformism”. When she was released, she emigrated to Paris in 1975, where she lived until her death in 2013.
