We are cmd+c, an artists’ company that surges from the necessity to produce stories of different perspectives (with a queer and social eye) and allowing freedom in creating new dialogs with society. The company was set up by Paula Knüpling and Marina Prados in 2017. In 2018 Carlos Perelló joined the group as a constant collaborator in an artistic exchange. Our work, which can be described as transarts, combines documentary, pseudo realism, politics, in depth research and contemporary dramaturgies.
cmd+c is based between Berlin and Barcelona with an aim to always produce local/site specific. Concepts are being transferred between the two cities, in constant exchange with our environment. We want to inspire viewers to new perspectives and draw a picture of the world as we perceive it. We consider all members of each project as researchers, authors and performers and try to create flat hierarchies. Where possible, we work with diverse teams to gain perspective and by considering each member’s ideas equally gain clarity.
