AAA! (Almost Aged Actionists Anonymous) is an artistic self-help group with the aim of exchanging and developing intervention ideas that can easily be converted into practice by single persons. The interventions and actions deal with realities of women over 40 on the borders of public and private spaces, of legality and with role constructions and clichés.
AAA! was started in the context of the festival Wienwoche in 2018. Actionist ideas and other inspirations from informal meetings have been collected on the AAA!website since then as work-in-process.
A woman is standing alone at the side of the road – is she a hitchhiker, a prostitute, seeking help, fleeing, displaced, lost or deranged? Her looks, anyway, are inconspicuous: apparently local, conventionally dressed, no luggage other than a handbag, aged around 40. She is trying to wave down cars.
Once a cars stops she does not get in but rather tells short excerpts from first-person accounts by women driven into various kinds of dependency through the opened window. The texts are based on the film script of “It Happened Just Before” (Anja Salomonowitz, 2006).
Where should all the vinyl records go that DJs and record collectors do not want or need any more? They just auction them at a minimal prize. And because they have something to say about them that is usually unheard, DIEVORSPIELSERVICE is a very entertaining show with mostly unexpected crazy comments, singing along and enthusiastic audience participation.
