Combining Influences: An Interview With Rebecca Farr

Combining Influences An Interview With Rebecca Farr 1

Rebecca Farr is currently dabbling in collage. The painter has turned to late nineteenth century photography and historical images as a resource of images to place in her work. “I was doing very traditional, straight figurative paintings and now I am thinking of paint with collage and painting from collage,” she says, reflecting on what she is currently working on. “Right now I’m looking at the scale of what I have been doing and bringing that back to full painting informed by collage. I’ve been really captureD by old inky photography from the mid-1800s to early 1900s–but I don’t feel settled with just presenting that image again.”

Whoa, Nellie: Get Ready For Little House On The Prairie-Oke!

Whoa Nellie Get Ready For Little House On The Prairie-Oke! 1

What do you get when you take a classic American television show, combine it with many dashes of Top Forty music numbers, and then place it on a stage? You get a pop cultural stew that is bubbling with personality and wit. Director and writer Dane Whitlock is a master at this and has shown this through works like Are You There God? It’s Me, Karen Carpenter. His latest piece is equally as cut-and-paste from American entertainment as it takes television classic Little House On The Prairie, places a glittery microphone in its hand, and then has it sing and dance to some of the biggest songs on the radio. The result is the hysterical Little House On The Prarie-Oke, a production that sees Whitlock taking Laura Ingalls Wilder out to a karaoke bar in Koretown. We caught up with Whitlock on the eve of the show’s production week to hear about the process of creating such a unique piece and what it’s like to work with so many fantastic LA creatives.
