NY PREMIERE
Farmhouse/Whorehouse: An Artist Lecture by Suzanne Bocanegra Starring Lili Taylor
Dec 12—Dec 16, 2017
Theater

Directed by Lee Sunday Evans

 

Part artist talk, part memoir, part gleefully rambling cultural essay, Suzanne Bocanegra’s performance work mines her Texan upbringing, aesthetic influences, and far-reaching imagination to make sense of our collective subconscious. In Farmhouse/Whorehouse, inspired by her grandparents who lived on a small farm across the road from the Chicken Ranch (better known as the “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”), Bocanegra uses text, costumes, video projections, and a new song by Shara Nova with lyrics by Bocanegra's grandmother to consider the American myth of rural utopia. Following her acclaimed collaborations with actors Paul Lazar (When a Priest Marries a Witch, an Artist Lecture) and Frances McDormand (Bodycast: An Artist Lecture, 2013 Next Wave), this third installment in the series enlists the talents of Brooklyn-based actress Lili Taylor.
