The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the farmhouse next door, and unexpected connections in between

In “Farmhouse/Whorehouse,” presented by UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance at the Theatre at Ace Hotel on Saturday, Bocanegra, sitting inconspicuously at a desk in dim light, feeds lines directly into an earpiece worn by actor Lili Taylor, who delivers a tantalizingly digressive talk. The retrospective address, vibrating with eccentric observations and quiet humor, centers on the memory of Bocanegra’s grandparents’ farm in La Grange, Texas.
