Ohhhhh sometimes a gear just clicks into place like life is a giant Rube Goldberg machine. Tonight’s amazing FARMHOUSE/WHOREHOUSE at @bam_brooklyn from @suzannebocanegra with @lilittaylor was just what I needed. Brilliant, smart, funny, human, storytelling plus history plus archive plus visual work across mediums like there’s no signage for the path to Polymath but I love this crazy ride and it’s always a thrill to see the work of the others really cutting through that brush. Brava tutti. #bamnextwave amazing this year as always. Also love the new Fisher space! Bonus lovely vintage seat moment. Oh and thanks to @joannacvalente for being game to come with! #teamenby #inspiration #bam #artlyfe #interdisciplinary #multimedia #performance #performanceart #art #brooklyn

In 1975, the tyrannical Khmer Rouge came to power in Cambodia following a brutal civil war. Over the course of the next four years the regime held power, some 1.7 million Cambodians died from starvation, disease, overwork, and genocide. The Khmer Rouge targeted intellectuals, artists, actors, and musicians as undesirables because they didn’t fit Pol Pot's image of a new #Cambodia—a country free of all outside influence and any remnant of what he considered “decadent” culture.

The overall effect of this campaign against creatives was disastrous for the country's cultural landscape. By the time the Vietnamese drove the Khmer Rouge from power in 1979, most artists were dead, in exile, or too traumatized to practice their craft. Over on the #BAMblog, we partnered with illustrator @gelgud to honor five Cambodian visionaries lost during this tragic time in conjunction with Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia, coming to the #BAMNextWave this weekend on Dec 15 & 16 👉🏻 (link in bio) 🇰🇭

Suzanne Bocanegra & Lili Taylor : Farmhouse/Whorehouse #bamnextwave

In Farmhouse/Whorehouse (tonight—Sat at BAM Fisher), performance artist #SuzanneBocanegra enlists the talents of actress #LiliTaylor to mine her Texan upbringing and aesthetic influences to make sense of our collective subconscious. Inspired by Bocanegra’s grandparents who lived on a small farm across the road from the Chicken Ranch (aka the “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”), the artist lecture incorporates text, costumes, video projections, and a new song by @mybrightestdiamond to consider the American myth of rural utopia. Limited tix still available! 📸: @georgiaphotonyc #BAMNextWave

Tuesday afternoon at the dress rehearsal for Farmhouse/Whorehouse: an Artist Lecture by Suzanne Bocanegra starring Lili Taylor. The piece is thought-provoking, homespun, expansive, beautifully crafted. I thought of my Southern roots, my Mimi's (grandmother) city garden & Mississippi farm life and my sister's @waitingforthesea love of Dolly Parton & the film Best Little Whorehouse in Texas when she was a child. What a transcendent piece of performative folklore. Show runs Dec 12-16. 😍 #BAMNextWave #pastoral #texas #bestlittlewhorehouseintexas #memphisborn #mississippi #folklore #lilitaylor #suzannebocanegra #chickenranch #communes #brooklyn #dollyparton #farmhouse
