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. Commissioned by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts.
