Gasoline Queen
by cmd+c

Opening: 20 of October 2022, Ballhaus Ost, Berlin

At the annual small town folk festival, two former best friends meet again after a long radio silence. Anna’s career as a racer has taken off in the meantime and Milena is in the middle of her quarterlife crisis. Between Gasoline Queen choices and BFF memories, they try to revive
their relationship and face their life choices.

A queer musical about friendship, Y2K nostalgia, the absurdity of heteronormative traditions and everyday competitive culture.

cmd+c was founded by the couple Marina Prados and Paula Knüpling with the intention to create queer structures in front of and behind the stage and to deal with them in a fair, respectful and creative way. Works have already been seen at Volksbühne, Schaubude and Ballhaus Ost, most recently »Ladybitch – ein Theaterabend über den Untergang Franz Kramers«
