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.
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.
For all the places where a DJ seems to be indispensable but is so often bored human decoration. And for those who cant´t afford to pay me fully — this comes along with 1 – 4 Readymixs (to be ordered).
