ABOUT: A funny, frightening and darkly surreal meditation on childhood trauma, unexamined white American privilege, and the cannibalistic nature of celebrity, House of Gold tells the story of Jon Benet Ramsey in the afterworld, re-enacting her story over and over in hopes of finally getting it right. Queering the boundary between domesticity and performance space, we employed elements of artifice and theatricality to highlight the absurdity of domestic and childhood expectations.
