Tyler Matthew Oyer - Gone for Gold
Money is a pain, only a few can gain.
Money is for supper, excess and clutter.
Money put me in the gutter,
Money is a real motherfucker.
“GONE FOR GOLD” is an allegorical critique of the contemporary American condition of wondering and wandering. This searching is generated from questions regarding what constitutes value in the face of the many discouraging social and economic crises. Not only is the obvious topic of money in the script of this performance, it is joined by multiple issues seeking justice through understanding and action. These include the forms of prejudice located in and around gender, race, sexual orientation, and class.
But my desire for something real was what drove my search
I wanted something to hold from this Earth, not from their glamour church.
