Most of Gómez-Peña’s characters are hybrids, half traditional and half contemporary, half Mexican and half Chicano. During the performance the characters undergo constant transformations seen through overlapping props, costumes and makeup. Each character articulates within himself a series of cultural contradictions which are at the core of the US-Latino experience.
