TERRA TRACTUS: The Earth Moves

"Truly a life-changing phenomenon of art and theater, unlike anything you have ever witnessed before..."

Projects2k celebrates its 20th Anniversary of providing spectacular, thought provoking and educational programming with TERRA TRACTUS: The Earth Moves, June 19-22, 2014

Against the cavernous backdrop of the historical Stony Creek Quarry, TERRA TRACTUS is a spectacle of light, lasers, projections, fog, pyrotechnics, music and climbing dancers, recounting the geological history of Earth, Connecticut, and the Quarry itself.

The Event

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 affects.

The 4-day run will include onsite food trucks for pre-performance dining; VIP tickets with gourmet dinner and premium seating; and corporate sponsorship evenings with a tour of the quarry, dinner, and a private showing of the performance. More information and tickets available by calling 203-415-5613 or 203-215-2227, emailing wulkestudio@juno.com, and visiting Projects2k.org.
