2017 CounterCurrent Festival presents <i>Farmhouse/Whorehouse</i>

Lili Taylor performs Suzanne Bocanegra’s newest lecture as Suzanne Bocanegra. Using text, song, costume, film, and projections, Farmhouse/Whorehouse draws on the lives of Bocanegra’s grandparents on their small farm in La Grange, Texas, which was across the road from the Chicken Ranch, better known as “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.” Through the lens of the farm and the brothel, a story emerges that considers the invention of the pastoral in art, the homesteading movement, hippie communes in the 1960s and the idea of the prostitute in art and theater.
