an autobiographical monologue performed by its writer, the ponytailed Nikolai Khalezin, it starts amiably enough by reminding us that bootleggedjeans and records are both a symbol of defiance and a source of illicit trade in a repressive system. In a line that might have come out of Stoppard's Rock 'n' Roll, he says of his generation, "We wanted to know everything about Mick Jagger and nothing about the Communist party." With skill and subtlety, Khalezin goes on to describe his own arrest after a demonstration in 1998. He describes his claustrophobic horror at being placed in an 8Ox8Ocm cell, and how the experience was made even worse by the fact that he had recently fallen in love. Played against a seamless background of pop music, controlled by an on-stage DJ, Khalezin's testimony is as honest about himself as it is unsparing in its description of the degredations of confinement..
