[or the whale] opens January 9
December 15, 2015
We’ve reached the centerpiece of our constellation, Juli Crockett’s [or, the whale]. For three weeks only we will dive into the mind of the old sea-salt sea captain of the one leg. More info on the production page, but don’t wait to get tickets – the first two parts of our constellation (All Well and Drowned Horse Tavern) sold out very quickly.

The Journey Play Is The Whole Thing:
A constellation of art objects, events and experience
We are pleased to announce our upcoming constellation of performance. Eighteen months of programming will take us from a grog soaked tavern, to the depths of the abyss, out to sea in search of a lost limb, and on into the unknown. PETE has conceived our work in the next year as an interconnected series of art objects, events and experiences inspired by a singular piece of source material.
There are some enterprises in which a careful disorderliness is the true method
-Melville, Moby Dick
At the center of our constellation is a play: or, the whale by Juli Crockett. Beneath this play is a book: Moby Dick, by Herman Melville. PETE will spend the next year digging deeper still, seeking what lies further beneath. Our full ensemble of associate artists and founding members will work together on each project, creating resonance between each individual performance and the constellation’s whole. We have an ambitious journey ahead. We hope you will join us.
The first three events of The Journey Play Is The Whole Thing are:
Drowned Horse Tavern: July 9-12, 2015
All Well: October 29-November 1, 2015
or, the whale: January 2016
Drowned Horse Tavern
May 12, 2015
Batten down the hatches and clutch your grog tight – in Drowned Horse Tavern drunken sailors meet to tell tales of shipwreck and lurking leviathans, to sing songs of adventure and loneliness, to whisper of the unfathomable sea within. PETE will spin vaudeville, live music and visceral performance into a raucous evening of salty cabaret as part of PETE’s The Journey Play Is The Whole Thing: A Constellation Of Art Events, Objects and Experience.
Drowned Horse Tavern
July 9-12 at 7:30pm
