TERRA TRACTUS: The Earth Moves continues the Projects2k tradition of tremendous and multifaceted performance making. This year we look at the geological history of the Earth, and the Stony Creek Quarry itself, as they evolve through ancient history to our projected future through elemental, tectonic, and man-made forces. This dynamic multimedia performance will feature lasers, projections, music, dance, rock-climbers, fog, pyrotechnics and much, much more!

The 8-day run will include onsite food trucks for pre-performance dining. Parking is off-site at the Walsh Intermediate School Parking Lot in Branford, Connecticut (except with special limited ticketing for onsite parking). Arrive at Walsh at 6:00pm for shuttle service to the Stony Creek Quarry. Guides, food and pre-show experience at the Stony Creek Quarry begins 6:15pm, the one-hour show starts at 8:15 dusk.

Projects2k mourns the loss of its founder Joy Wulke

Artist Joy Wulke, 65, died February 25 at Connecticut Hospice in Branford, CT after a seven-month struggle with cancer. Born in San Bernardino, CA on May 23, 1948 and raised in Long Beach, she earned a BA in Architecture from Washington State University (1970) and a Master of Environmental Design from Yale (1974). She was a widely published and decorated sculptor, photographer and public artist, winning a 2013 Arts Award from the Arts Council of Greater New Haven. The founder of the nonprofit Projects for a New Millennium (now Projects2K), she became a strong advocate for the fusion of art and science to foster environmental awareness and ecological stewardship. Her photography collection at Yale’s Beinecke library and her permanent installations, including those at the San Francisco (CA) Jewish Community Center and the Stamford (CT) Metro-North Railroad Station, continue to enrich their settings and inspire those who take the time to look.

More on her works and artistic philosophies on life can be viewed on this website, on www.joywulke.com, and on YouTube.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to her arts and education nonprofit Projects for a New Millennium
