Luna and Gomez-Pena have been co-conspirators since 1993. Solid Gold is their most recent
performance. This piece is a radical opera and an anthology of past and recent work in the form of a
live art record album. We invite you to dematerialize through a sensory overload of images, texts, and
sound. Through an open structure, the artists challenge you to move and experience the performance
from multiple perspectives and distances.
