ABA NAIA - POST PORN CLOWNING
ABA NAIA is an international Berlin-based collective created in 2017 to investigate female comicality, as well as to draw attention to themes such as feminism, gender, heritage, sense of belonging and the decolonisation of the body. Some of the questions currently guiding our artistic research are: how can women produce comicality through their sexuality? What does our concept of post-porn clowning look like? Where is the border between comicality and awkwardness? How far can a woman go with a certain action?
ABA NAIA made a first version of We Can Do It Moaning in April 2018 in the Expat Expo Festival at English Theatre Berlin. In 2019 they returned to the festival with the show Banana Pride™, created in collaboration with the performer Paola Pilnik. Currently ABA NAIA concentrates on exhaustive research on female moaning. The cofounders are Kysy Fischer (Brazil), Rafuska Marks (Brazil) and Teija Vaittinen (Finland).
