Private Party


Shiva Theater
January 13 & January 20, 2024

Private Party
Co-created by Ellpetha Tsivicos + Camilo Quiroz-Vázquez featuring the One Whale’s Tale Whales.

Join Ellpetha Tsivicos and Camilo Quiroz-Vázquez for an exclusive party celebrating the final production of their company, One Whale’s Tale. Meet the artists whose work has been called “…inorganic and at odds with itself…” by The New York Times. Join us for a debaucherous journey into their greatest hits: QUINCE, Persou, Night Descends on Svalbard, and CHAK. Pack your bags, it’s a weird trip! It’s a waiting game, a birthday, a funeral, it’s excessive and it’s a tax write off- it’s illegal in six different states, it will make you look five pounds thinner and it’ll defund the NEA. It’s our last show, it’s a party, a private party and you’re invited (maybe). Bring a gift!

One Whale's Tale

One Whale's Tale is a multidisciplinary production company that creates, fosters, and generates new independent work with an appreciation for magic and the preservation of culture. One Whale’s Tale creates community centered work that reflects the experiences of immigrants, first-generation Americans, and people of color. They are guided by Magical Urbanism, an aesthetic One Whale’s Tale has developed, which examines how the ancient traditions of our company members and collaborators exist within a modern urban landscape. One Whale’s Tale’s performances are inspired by cultural festivals and ceremonies which incorporate live music, food, and participatory elements for the audience. They create dialogues with the communities they work within. The company has partnered with organizations such as The People’s Garden, the Gowanus Dredgers, the Street Vendor Project, los Tecuanes Quetzalcoátl, Make the Road NY, Hunter College Theatre Department, Bulla en el Barrio, Maraca Bruja, Rehabilitation Through the Arts, After Incarceration, Art and Resistance Through Education, Solo Homies Car Club, and the Federation of Cypriot American Organizations. One Whale’s Tale’s vision establishes a holistic approach to annual programming which involves their audience and community from creation to performance, giving them full access and a deeper connection to One Whale’s Tale’s work and resources. onewhalestale.com @onewhalestale
