Ellpetha Tsivicos (Director/Co-Creator) is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. She is a first-generation Cypriot-American, a dual identity rooted in the ancient rural traditions of her ancestral land. Ellpetha graduated from New York University with a BFA in Drama, and a minor in Art and Public Policy. In 2012, she co-founded a multimedia production company, One Whale’s Tale, which has produced award winning shorts – Fruit Detective (Director) and Dolores – as well as the comedic web-series This Is Me Trying (Director), which was featured on FunnyorDie, NY Mag, Dailymotion, and the Wild Magazine. She has recently directed a music video, Hurt Me, by #8 Billboard artist Michelle Kash, and a web-series, Beds. Collaborating alongside visual artist Mariah Robertson, Ellpetha has performed at the MoMa, Ps1, Art Basel, and the Art in Embassies Gala at the Smithsonian Institute. In addition, she recently completed her second artistic collaboration as a designer and performer on the immersive spectacle Leonora’s World, with Double Edge Theatre. Ellpetha was the Associate Producer of Primer for a Failed Superpower, a concert of intergenerational protest music, directed by Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin and produced by the TEAM.
Camilo Quiroz-Vazquez (Writer/Co-Creator) is a Chicano theater artist, filmmaker, and visual artist from the mythical land of Aztlán. He began his artistic journey at a community arts center, Plaza de La Raza. This education inspired and empowered him to study at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Through his production company and an ongoing 10-year collaboration with Ellpetha Tsivicos, Camilo has written and co-produced two award-wining short films: Dolores, a drama about colorism in the Mexican-American community, and Fruit Detective, a slapstick noir. In 2018 Camilo first collaborated with The TEAM on the a short documentary around the creation of, Primer for a Failed Superpower. Camilo has developed his love of spectacle and collaborative performance through training and artistic collaborations – spanning 8 years – with the Double Edge Theatre ensemble. Camilo’s work is driven by the stories, songs and dances of his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, godparents, friends, neighbors, and spirits who intimately shared the spaces of his childhood.
